Linden in Lace by Janet Morton, 2003
It's easy to see the humour in Janet Morton's artwork. One look at the Canadian artist's sweater for a house or television or this beautiful lace covering for a tree brings an instant smile. But look deeper...

Her work also asks us to take a look at how humans interact with their environment and how we alter and sometimes destroy it. As we wind down garden month and prepare for green month, we're thinking about how our own space, indoors or out, works with our environment, whether it's making a commitment to compost, considering drought tolerant plants, planting a vegetable garden or getting to know our neighbors.
