Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

While I love that I get to experience all four seasons living in New England, I definitely prefer any other season to winter. I don't really enjoy most winter activities (unless you count sitting beside a fire or soaking in a hot tub with mountain views). This winter I've been trying to find as much "summer" as possible. The courtyard of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was the perfect spot to spend an afternoon when negative degrees hit. Dangerous wind chills outside? No problem, it's always a tropical paradise in there. This visit gave me serious greenhouse envy and now I've spent the past few days researching building your own greenhouse. I smell a summer project coming!
