Green Curtains

I’ve been off the air for a week because we’ve been on vacation:  Vienna for a few days, then down to Istria for some beach, mountains and sight seeing.  We visited a wonderful Croatian national park today:  Risnjak.

Meanwhile, here’s just a quick hitter on an item I saw on “green curtains” from the excellent writers at SmartPlanet.  Green curtains are part of the continuum of green building, hearkening to the call of biophilic design.  Simple, and in keeping with how nature does its work.  How can you miss?
