Although I'm eager to get gardening, I am bummed that this could be the last good snowfall of the season. I came home to this view, with the beautiful contrast between the freshly fallen white snow and the red bark of the super cheap and interestingly shaped Japanese maple I got on clearance last summer.

Here's the color-corrected version of the pic!

It's this tree's shape that's inspired me to get a garden arch for this side of the house this spring. I want to continue the arch theme, and am thinking climbing roses or some other climbing (and probably flowering) plant/vine that's OK with shade part of the day and potentially poor soil. Suggestions? I'm also wondering about clematis...
