January’s garden is buried under hard-packed snow and the ground is hard as iron. Subzero temps this week have collapsed any remaining evidence that there were swaths of green in those beds this summer, but. . .

Prostrate astilbe growing in a shady, wet site with gunnera and a royal fern,
and bouncing bet (Soapwort) sprawling over the hot, dry alpine garden.
