White, grey, wet and dull.  If this describes your landscape in the winter here in the midwest, and you’re looking to add splashes of color, here are some great ideas!

Trees with Colored Bark.  Even when the leaves are gone, these trees can provide a splash of color and interesting shapes to the monotone landscape.

A final great idea to add color to your landscape during the winter is by adding elements such as a colorful old bicycle, brightly-painted planters and benches, or a stone feature with evergreen shrubs growing amongst the rocks.
