When it comes to climate change, this artist lets the trees do the talking

Excellent article on Frances Whitehead’s work in Chicago renewing a landscape and using planting to engage people with the patterns of climate in the area. If you are patient or observant you’ll be able to watch the blooming of the apple serviceberry trees like a slow wave heading towards Lake Michigan. You’ll also be able to track the phenology, the shift in the timings of the seasons.
