Here up North, one needs a lot of winter interest in the garden.
On either side of our front door, I planted deciduous Winterberry Holly bushes.
They were full of winter interest.
Even in the snow the bright berries stood out.
They evidently stood out a little too much.
They caught the eye of some local wildlife.
A family of bluebirds greatly enjoyed my winter interest bushes.
Now my bushes don't have nearly so much winter interest.
But I do garden for wildlife as well, so what can I say?
They really were the prettiest thieves!
