Winter Trees
During winter, botany can seem like it pauses, but January and February are months of beautiful colours and forms. Wrap up warm and go look at the trees: their bark, their shape, and most of all their twigs and buds.

the botany students
dozens of houseplants growing in your room
a pocket guide to local flora tucked in your backpack
studying the complex anatomy of plants
performing experiments to see how plants grow under different conditions
long walks, identifying the species you see along the way
detailed botanical diagrams
the humid air of a greenhouse
practicing sketches, working to accurately capture each leaf and petal
pressing samples beneath heavy textbooks
understanding the complex nature of ecosystems
wildflowers tucked into your hair
a crumbling stone wall, overgrown with moss and ivy
learning to distinguish edible and poisonous plants
watching a graft take hold
fingertips stained with chlorophyll and dirt
a cup of herbal tea, slowly growing cold as you study for an exam
the smell of earth just after a rainstorm
wandering through a forest, counting the types of trees you pass
knowing what plants to use for home remedies
tending to your garden
cool, foggy mornings, walking through dew covered grass
collecting samples for further study, handling the delicate specimens with care
a sense of awe at the huge variety in plant species
the rare elegance of flowers that bloom only once a decade
