Winter's Garden


LUSH GREENERY, A WELCOME BREAK FROM WINTER

Every January The Riverfront Art Center (my favorite local art venue) has a yearly show called Winter's Garden which opens this Friday.  The gallery will be filled with artwork of all mediums whose subject is gardens.  Walking into the space is such a welcome relief from the shades of winter white outside.  Along with the art will be live orchids, violets and cyclamen for sale. This is a great fundraiser for the center and the plants brighten up the homes of the recipients. Today I had the good fortune to go to the wholesale greenhouse with the director to pick up the plants.  How wonderful to see all of this greenery!

WABI SABI ALPHABET SIGN

This board of letters was hanging on one of the walls.  I have no idea what it is for but being obsessed with grids these days I couldn't resist snapping a photo.  Very wabi sabi. 

How are you brightening up your January?

For me January is being brightened by roses - of the stitched kind. Would love to have been at that greenhouse with you though - how wonderful to see (and smell) growing things.

I recently discovered wabi-sabi...or at least the word. And now I see it everywhere. I did a post on it a little while ago.
