Yesterday, Zoe and I took a trip to Olbrich Gardens to check out the spring show: Wisconsin Woodlands It’s very flowery unlike the cold, snowy outdoors and goes until March 24th. The┬áChenille Tree (Acalypha hispida) in the conservatory is still going crazy:

Tillandsia funckiana

It’s official, I’m addicted to Instagram. I needed a new stationary hobby to do while feeding Zoe in addition to watching lots and lots of bad tv (she eats a lot). Yesterday we went to Olbrich Botanical Gardens to check out the Bolz Conservatory and get out of the house for a little bit. Tillandsia funckiana is one of our faves and just happened to be blooming like crazy. I linked this top pic to my Instagram pic if you want to find me (they’re also on flickr). I’d love to have more Instagrammers to follow, my user name is faroutmegan & Matti is fofmatti.

Lots of bros were doing their flowery thing at the Conservatory. They have a great assortment of them.

What’s this?

Didn’t grab the name of this cool flowered plant. Anyone know what it is?

Autumn Arrangement

I love decorative cabbages and kales… so much so I planted ones you’re supposed to eat out back and only gaze at them with love.
