A temper passionate and fierce may suddenly your joys disperse at one immense explosion.
William Cowper

The Bolz Conservatory’s collection of plants mimics the diversity of plants in the world’s tropical forests. Yes, we have the tropics in Wisconsin. When we get a half a foot of snow later tomorrow, you’ll know where to find me. In Wisconsin’s tropical paradise.

    Great name for the pix. However, when the snow comes, you won’t find me in the tropics. I’ll be on the slopes.

    fabulous! I love how you embraced the dark in this photo. I however find that I love the dark more than the light. Me and Darth Vader I guess. 🙂 I tend to think that light is only a necessary means to enhance darkness. Twisted I know. Love it! love it! love it!

    Aullori ~ I love dark, too. I’m doing a Shadow Zine which has is pretty much dark. Would you like a copy?

    Monarch ~ Thanks. I’m never sure about the b/w choice so I’m glad you commented.

    ybonesy ~ thanks for the visit and comment.
