while this week's seasonal bloom is not a flower arrangement, we still hope that you enjoy learning about a recent discovery we made while traveling. at the north carolina botanical garden, i noticed information about an image archive for the late botanist & ecologist, b.w.wells. once home, i went online and explored the archive of 494 images available for viewing through NCSU. most of the images were made by wells in the early part of the 20th century around north carolina, as he explored the landscape and documented the various plants he discovered. the slides are just beautiful. enjoy.
