Glass Flowers

Took some time out for a peaceful lunchtime visit to the Harvard Museum of Natural History with my friend Blue Magruder, who is director of communications there. The justifiably famous glass flower collection is the perfect antidote to a damp and dreary March day. Everything in bloom from iris to rhodies to cacti. Did you know the flowers were created not for beauty, but to provide perfect specimens for the study of botany?
