Sometimes the best view is up!

Especially at Longenecker Gardens at the University of Wisconsin’s Longenecker Gardens in Madison. There are over 300 varieties of crabapples, magnolias, and lilacs in the arboretum.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

  3. Stunning. I – too – am finding these picture/postcard spring skies irresistible!!
