Starting almost immediately after the New Year I begin to get obsessed with the thought of spring and the need to see green things. This is when I unwisely buy too many house plants (I already have too many) & start planning what veggies I'll grow this year. Luckily while visiting my family in extremely cold/snowy/gray Michigan I also have the option of visiting the botanical garden conservatory, so that's what we did yesterday:

I'm going to go ahead and think of Jan. 2nd as the real start of my new year since I was feeling so unwell on Jan. 1st and yesterday was so enjoyable!
I'm still out of town/on vacation until Monday but I do have a piece in this show that's opening in Portland on January 5th at Compound Gallery, so if you're in town you may want to check it out!
