This is what a botany book should look like.  I found this a while back… probably at a thrift store, but I don’t remember.


I don’t know if I mentioned this but at the ripe old age of 28 I decided to go back to school to finish my Associates degree, and this semester I’m taking a botany class at Pasadena City College, to fill the science lab-lecture requirement.  I was very excited about taking this class, and still am.  My teacher is Dr. Debra Fulsom, who is a research botanist for the Huntington Botanical Gardens and also apparently a published author (which I only found upon Googling her!).  It’s a fascinating subject for me, as I have been obsessed with plants since I was about 13.  Anyway, I just wanted to post this beautiful old botany book and have you compare it to this cover, which is what is on my actual schoolbook… no offense to Van Gogh, but this is inappropriate for a botany book.
