Garden in First Snow

Gardeners frequently debate whether to cut down their perennials in the fall or leave them until spring.  I always leave mine until the spring and these photos demonstrate one of the reasons why.  Not only do the stems hold the snow aloft to prevent compaction over the roots but the seed heads add winter interest to the garden, provide seeds for the birds and look fabulous after a fresh fall of snow.
