This has nothing to do with cold climate gardening per se, but should be fascinating to anyone who loves flowers. At Floral Radiographs: The Secret Garden, Albert Richards displays his x-rays, yes, x-rays, of many common flowers. He produces an image both beautiful and fascinating. Now, I saw this same technique in the March 2003 issue of Marth Stewart Living, this time employed by Bryan Whitney to illustrate basic botany concepts. MSL came in my mailbox, but I found Richards’ floral radiographs via dublog via MSNBC’s Weblog Central. Amazing where you’ll end up when you start surfing the internet, eh?
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
