A Bouquet Study

A Bouquet in May as in Mayapple

Have you ever looked at a bouquet as an opportunity to learn something? If you haven't, can I turn you on to that as an idea as I was first turned on to it in the lunchroom at Brooklyn Botanic during my horticulture internship (be quick! there's a deadline) last year? I have a ton of sweet memories of work/studying at Brooklyn Botanic and some are of studying branches or bunches of flowers gathered together in water in the lunchroom. There's more than one lesson in the bouquet above, but one is that May is an excellent time to go for a walk in the Native Flora garden at Brooklyn Botanic and be on the lookout for blooming Mayapples.
