Plant Portraits: a cure for our seasonal malaise

Plant Portraits: a cure for our seasonal malaise
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  30/11/2015

The rain. The cold. The dark mornings. The dark nights. We find life pretty stressful at this time of the year and welcome any calming influences that interrupt our seasonal malaise.

Today these serene Plant Portraits from Kate McGuire's new exhibition at Outlaws Yacht Club helped to take the edge off the Monday blues and got us thinking that we should adopt a plant-like approach to the season. Have you noticed how plants just get on with the winter? There's no grumbling. They sit tight, heads down and stay out of trouble until the sun starts shining again.

However, we do appreciate that trying to be a plant for the next few months does have its downside and may interfere with one's daily life. A more practical alternative would be to pop down to Outlaws, sample the botanical cocktails created specially for the exhibition and enjoy the beautiful artwork. Happy Monday!
