A Japanese Zen garden is the ideal way to relax a bit in the midst of the end of the year activities that fill this time of year. The garden is intended to bring out the essence of nature and inspire meditation and quiet reflection. The garden features Japanese plants, kokedama, and cherry blossom trees, interspersed with water features, rock displays, and Japanese sculptures. The colors are gorgeous, just perfect for spring.

Art in Bloom 2019 at the Milwaukee Art Museum

Art in Bloom 2019

Art in Bloom is an annual event at multiple art museums around the United States, including the Milwaukee Art Museum. Local florists create installations inspired by various artworks in the museum. The term installations doesn’t begin to do justice to the creativity that goes into these stunning floral creations. The floral displays are phenomenal, ranging from very literal to quite abstract interpretations.

It’s becoming something of an annual tradition to attend the yearly orchid show at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The show always runs in February and March, which is the perfect time to escape to the indoor greenhouses for a little warmth and color. With a fairly open calendar this time of year, we always fit in a visit to the orchid show.

I have been very excited for the Miniature Milwaukee train show. I love all things Milwaukee. After seeing miniature Chicago  at Wonderland Express this past holiday season, I was really looking forward to Miniature Milwaukee. Although the past two train show themes were nice, I hadn’t been really excited about a train show at the Domes since The Great Train Robbery. Miniature Milwaukee didn’t disappoint.
