This book is chock-full of beautiful images! It came through the drop at work and I immediately ran to get my phone so I could take a picture. This is my favorite page.

As a plant lover, this beautiful book was right up my alley. The illustrations are fantastic and the details given about each plant are fascinating. It's earned a permanent place on my coffee table!

The Amazon water lily gets its own page! Its leaves can grow to 8 feet wide, and "are so buoyant that they can easily support the weight of a child."

I have been a bit off the radar lately because I was on vacation in beautiful Dublin! Went to visit a friend and see the city ofc. One of my afternoons was spend in the Dublin Botanic Garden. It's so beautiful and very large, it makes for such a peaceful reading spot. 💚

Kalalalatja Looks lovely! 2y

The tulip "was the source of the world's first financial crash in Holland in the 1630s. At this time, individual bulbs were traded for the price of four oxen, eight pigs, twelve sheep or a thousand pounds of cheese."

So I just got an amazing book present. And now I will spend the rest of the day learning about different plants (and non-plants, such as fungi and lichen) such as the golden shield lichen (top right), leathery goblet fungus (bottom left), and turkey-tail fungus (the blue one at the bottom).

I do love a botanical drawing (and a beet). The whole WELCOME TO THE MUSEUM series has delighted me so far--Animalium is also a joy to explore.

This large and glorious book is keeping me happy with all the lovely pictures of green and growing things now that it seems to be full-on winter again. Thank goodness for running away into books!
