UW Madison Arboretum – inside
We’ve been traveling from Milwaukee to Madison for the last three weeks to take in some of the Winter Enrichment courses offered at the UW Madison Arboretum. Unfortunately, it has been blasted cold each week, so we haven’t been out hiking the trails. Someone set up this little display of prairie grasses in the south window of the visitor’s center, and the sun shining in teased me with memories of warm autumn days smelling dried grass. In the deep freeze of winter, it’s nice to have some plant life taking up residence INSIDE.
Thank you very much! I do like the soft serenity of sunlight through glass…especially in monochrome.
😀 We have had NO winter here this year at all. ( not in my bit of England anyway.. ) I would actually have liked a bit of snow !
Are you serious? No polar vortex? No accumulation of 1.5 meters in stacks at the side of the driveway entrances, now dark with dirt and frozen into sinister icebergs? Well, then you missed out! 😉
I like the lines in the photo. As for being inside during the winter, it’s been a good year to be inside while in the Chicago area as well. I enjoyed winter and I’m ready for spring!
Me, too! Enjoying the 45 degree temps today and watching the ice melt on Lake Michigan.
beautiful photo, and what an interesting display -I’ve never thought of the different types of prairie grasses!
Thanks! The prairie is quite a diverse and interesting habitat even though it may look rather homogenous from a distance…but you may be confusing it for waving wheat fields!
