Lynden Sculpture Garden, and other February 10-12 events

Well, we may not have much snow, but we’ve got winter cold. Here we are – how are we going to deal with the weather? Let us entertain ourselves!

The Lynden Sculpture Garden is an unusual and fascinating place. A chance to see sculptures not in the museum, but in a carefully landscaped garden designed to frame them. (Leaves me feeling like I am leading the charmed life of a person who gets to wander around such sculptures…)

They are are having their second annual Winter Carnival this year. Events are indoors and outdoors, and include a Capture the Flag game designed and played in part by artists, a guided tour of trees in the winter landscape, and soups and bread designed for Milwaukee and the occasion. As well as an appearance by yours truly, the Ambassador of Snow 😉

Many local parks have candelight ski / hike events planned for this weekend, for couples looking for an active romantic activity to enjoy. Few things are more romantic than candlelight, right? Rather than curse the darkness, light a candle; rather than feel limited by the cold and dark, make it a special occasion, and enjoy it! Bong Recreation Area and Kettle Moraine have events planned, as well as State Parks in other parts of the state.
