Green Places – Exploring Bolz Conservatory in Olbrich Botanica Gardens

Green is Beautiful

Green is Beautiful

The sun is shining, the snow is melting. I always think of mid-March as the teaser. Sunny days, almost touching the 50˚F mark. The a dip back into the teens or 20s and frosty again. There are bits of my yard where there are peeks of grass, though much of the yard is under 6 or more inches of crusty snow. But it’s melting. Yes, it truly will be Spring soon.

I still have to find my green in the Bolz Tropical Conservatory, but I’m practicing for when those first bits of green shoots pop out of the earth. Ahhhhhhh!

  1. Hello there and welcome to Blotanical – I hope you enjoy meeting new gardeners over there – normally I post on blogs and send a message through Blotanical but this week I don’t have alot of free time. Pop over to my scottish garden blog sometime. I too am yearning for those spring days – they can’t come soon enough

  3. Love the green! Here now there are tiny green things emerging from the ground. So welcome!

  4. Yes…we’re being teased by spring as well. Love the repetition of pattern here. Almost abstract..but not quite.

    great visual pattern, and alas Spring will come and ski season will be done dancing. 🙁

  6. Springtime! Gotta love it. This is a simple but very pleasing shot. 🙂

  7. YAY! for Conservancies! They keep us sane during the winter months!
