This winter has been snowy and cold so far. We are supposed to go well below zero tonight.  The month of January has been a snowy one with at least one storm a week.  As much as I dislike winter it does give me time to read other blogs, study garden catalogs and work on upcoming talks that  I am giving this year.    I am having a half dozen  trees cut down that were in bad shape or in a bad location.  This will allow me  room to add  shrubs and smaller trees to help form the bones of the new garden.
