For the next month I will be living the life of a professional researcher, reaching out to seek further information and insight on a topic I am writing about. I am going to keep you in suspense for now about the TOPIC of my research, but I will enjoy sharing with you the experiences that I encounter in my pursuit.

Monday I leave Bismarck, North Dakota (where winter never happened, and the unseasonable temps are in the 50’s and 60’s and higher) and head to the Bronx, New York. There I will be meeting a wonderful colleague, a world-class botanical artist, and together we will be exploring the library and archives of the New York Botanical Garden. Two weeks in the Garden archives at the incredible LuESTHER T. MERTZ LIBRARY – oh what a wonderful opportunity. After New York I travel on to London, then Somerset, England until April 15.
