At the beginning of March, my family and I visited the Philadelphia Flower Show on one of the last nights of its run. Strange now to think about wandering the Convention Center with crowds of other people to admire the natural world. And admire we did — the extravagantly designed sets incorporating all types of flora, the miniature worlds of plants behind glass, and oh, the incredible varieties of award-winning orchids! One could spend an entire weekend just looking. It felt exhilarating to be reminded of the living beings with whom we share our world and the sheer diversity that exists on Earth. This funny-looking cactus caught our eye amidst the endless display of succulents.
