Partly sunny and 42 degrees — January doesn’t get much better than this in Minnesota.
We soaked up the warmth at the Arboretum this afternoon — rebelling against winter by taking off our gloves now and then. One of us left her heavy winter coat at home, and another left her coat unbuttoned.
The girls took turns practicing with the camera.
The greenhouse felt warm and lush. What a joy to be surrounded by real-live, green, growing plants with leaves! My youngest was determined to do some sketching, and she liked what she saw from this little bench. My oldest, who is studying botany this semester, liked that this is a “please touch” greenhouse, and she especially appreciated the orange trees and herbs.
I especially appreciated these blooms.
Thank You, God, for the gift of this unseasonably warm January day!
