About the Cover
by RJ Erhardt

We welcome a rejoining member, Callie Eide, who writes about her 2017 holiday adventure, Making Spirits Bright, at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum winter festival. She says, "It was Jingle All the Way as I entered through the gatehouse to a mesmerizing holiday display of Winter Wonderland on the Dahlberg Terrace. The Festive Farmstead near the picnic shelters radiated a sensation of country cheer, and the Snowball Terrace, Frozen Forest, and Trista Light displays wove a gleeful childlike magic in the frosty winter evening.

"For me, the arboretum always evokes that magic and mystery, bringing me back to my connection with nature and the wonder of childhood that many hearts crave. Voted No. 1 Arboretum in the United States – yes, the entire country — in 2017, the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is a state treasure at our fingertips — even with mittens on!"
