Surviving Winter

I happen to like winter. Fresh snow falling is kind of nice.
But I have my limits. Snow in December and January is nice. Snow in February is not. This is the point of the year that I go into survival-mode. Just make it through until the sun returns to Michigan and green begins to reappear.
Lucky for me, we have a gardens and sculpture park about 4 minutes from our house. Claire and I have been heading over there on a fairly regular basis the last few weeks. Something about spending time in the tropical conservatory gives me hope that Spring and warm weather will return to Michigan. Here's a little sample of some of the flowers we see in the conservatory.
Now can you blame me for being such a regular there???
