We’re always so thrilled when our members are spotlighted for their achievements or creativity. Recently, our resident house plant expert, Tom Brinkman, and his wife Sue were spotlighted by the Post-Crescent newspaper in an article that invites us to enjoy the tropics. This is especially inviting given the fact that we’re in Wisconsin — in February — where it snows a lot. Tom and Sue not only have a beautiful outdoor garden in the summer, they also have a huge greenhouse where hundreds of plants enjoy tropical weather even in our cold winter climate. As one of the instructors of our annual Master Gardener classes, students love the week where they get to visit Tom’s home and learn about the care of his amazing array of plants (including an astonishing number of bromeliads).
