Another for Women’s History Month, some botanical illustrations from one of our favorite artist/naturalists - Mary Vaux Walcott. 
Mary, also known as Mary Morris Vaux, was a remarkable woman who just happened to also marry the 4th Secretary of the Smithsonian. (one of the reasons she’s a favorite, plus - just look at those flowers!)

Images above from v. 2 and v.4 of North American wild flowers which has been digitized in its entirety and is available on the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
For even more beautiful plants, Smithsonian American Art Museum has many of her original watercolors in their collections

Conversations with my 10 year old sister:

  • Sister: We learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. in school today.
  • Me: Oh, yeah? What did you learn?
  • Sister: That when the teacher talks about black people everyone looks at me.

"Three thousand years ago I had a disagreement with Zeus about the Trojan War, and he’s been harassing me ever since." “You were alive three thousand years ago?” “All of us were.”
