Have you had your fill of winter yet? We’re gonna let you in on a little secret: The @uwbotany greenhouse in Birge Hall is an 8000-square-foot oasis of warmth and greenery everywhere you look.⠀ ⠀ Swipe to follow @uwmadison_brycerichter’s photo journey through the greenhouse!⠀ ⠀ 1️⃣ Sunlight shines through the glass roof and warms a variety of plant life.⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣ Japanese Lantern hibiscus (Hibiscus schizopetalus)⠀ ⠀ 3️⃣ Aquatic duckweed (Lemnoideae)⠀ ⠀ 4️⃣ Cape honeysuckle (Tecoma capensis)⠀ ⠀ 5️⃣ Chinese lantern (Abutilon)⠀ ⠀ 6️⃣ Orchid (Orchidaceae)⠀ ⠀ 7️⃣ Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula)⠀ ⠀ 8️⃣ Platies (Xiphophorus maculates) swim in a tank filled with aquatic plants.⠀ ⠀ 9️⃣ Barrel cactus (Echinocactus grusonii)⠀ ⠀ 🔟 It took a few moments for @uwmadison_brycerichter’s foggy glasses to adjust to the balmy @uwbotany greenhouse.

Looking for signs of love on this #ValentinesDay? If you look closely, you can find plenty of them on the walls, desks and tables throughout #UWMadison. Some are as recent as last week, and some signify a love from decades ago. Take a look. ⠀ ⠀ 📷: @freshmanbrian⠀ ⠀ #LoveUW #OnWisconsin

Laptops have replaced pencil and paper. Cellphones have replaced the telegraph. But UW snowball fights on Bascom Hill have remained the same: Exhilarating and cold.⠀ ⠀ This weekend, the Lakeshore and Southeast neighborhoods will once again duke it out in the annual #BattleForBascom.⠀ ⠀ 📷: @uwmadarchives, ca. 1900-1920⠀ ⠀ #UWMadison #BascomHill #tbt
