The Plant Whisperer: Mileece Petre

Hello all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I read this great article from the New York Times called A Haven for Making Music with Plants.  It is about:
Mileece Petre, a 35-year-old English artist and musician known professionally as Mileece, is a plant whisperer of sorts. In a digital-age spin on “The Secret Life of Plants,” the 1973 book that suggested plants are sentient, she attaches electrodes to leaves. The electromagnetic current is fed into software she wrote that turns the data into musical notes, so a garden becomes an orchestra (she especially likes philodendrons; their hearty leaves offer better support for the electrodes).
Mileece also has this wonderful garden as her yard with a vintage Airstream trailer and turtle named Ting.  Wouldn't you live here?
