Where the Green Things Are

I got a text the other day: “I am insanely desperate for green things. Wanna drive to a greenhouse with me? I want to shoot green things.” I joked on Instagram that Rebecca had me at “I am insane,” but I actually didn’t know how much I, too, craved green and warmth. The truth, though, is that she did have me at “wanna drive with me?” Yes. Always yes. And I could not have asked for a more refreshing day–good conversation with a good friend, a creative outlet, color (and texture!) and a break from winter that I didn’t know I needed (and that I am all the more thankful for today now that we are iced in in Lincoln), and the best takeout sushi I’ve had in a really, really long time.

Even though this sign actually says something else, when I glanced up, I read it as “Happy Plants.” Indeed.
