We had a heavy frost all week and I took some pictures of the frost-covered evergreens in the garden on Thursday before we woke up on Friday to the most gorgeous blanket of snow. This week in both the frost and the snow, the garden absolutely sparkled! My #SixonSaturday this week from my garden is a white one!
While a blanket of snow in the garden can look breathtaking and have benefits to the soil, large amounts of heavy, wet snow can put added weight onto tree branches and shrubs. This can lead to bending and breaking of branches and can even cause trees or shrubs to fall over or be uprooted.

Whether you've woken up to a blanket of snow this morning, have had snow for days or are still waiting on those first flutters, snow cover, believe it or not, can actually be quite beneficial for the trees and shrubs in your garden.
