A Botanical Art Website You'll Love

Exhibit Main Image
Botanical artist Margaret Pope, at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, sent a link to the Florilegium Program's website. Cindy Hartwell, their webmaster, has put the "Sonoran Desert Past and Present" exhibit on the website. She has done terrific job. Some images have been added to compliment the text as has more info on plant anatomy. The exhibit it will remain on the website and the added images and information will give viewers additional historical and educational information. For example, there's a great work of illustration from the USDA Botany Division's magazine,  published until 1901. Click HERE to go to the website, and you may want to add this address to your favorites, because there is a LOT to be seen and learned. Many thanks to Margaret and Cindy.
