If you love plants, but don’t have a green thumb, perhaps you should try crochet or knitting instead of gardening. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is currently hosting an exhibition entitled Knit, Purl, Sow, for which textile artists created beautifully detailed stitched botanical specimens.
"The exhibit has been two years in the making and contains 21 works with 19 provided by artist Tatyana Yanishevsky, who studied biology at Brown University. The Rhode Island-based artist dissected flowers and studied their anatomy in textbooks and greenhouses before starting down her creative path.”
Knit, Purl, Sow will be on exhibit at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden though January 23, 2014.
