I generally like the idea of vertical gardens and urban greening. But this one planned as part of the green renovation of the 18-story federal building in Portland, Ore., profiled in this morning’s NY Times seems like a stretch.
I had a few minutes to check out the exhibition at the Mann Library Gallery of works by Ithaca artist milly acharya this afternoon. If you’re in the area, go see them. If you’re not, check out her gallery. (Delphine: allez voient) Click on the image at right for a larger view of one of my favorites.
Botanical illustration can be dry. But acharya’s are filled with life. Plus, most of them are plants that I grow, as local plants are the focus of her work.
