thanks, dad

My father was a biology teacher before he retired and has always been interested in botany. One day he stopped by my house with some botanical charts he’d RESCUED FROM THE TRASH. Can you believe that?! Someone tossed them out! He knew how great they were and that I’d love them. We’ve since taken a couple of them and “framed” them with strips of trim (the kind you can buy by the foot at any home store). We sandwiched the top and bottom of the chart between two strips on each end and secured them with screws. I then ran a length of ribbon through the “strip sandwich” and around the screws to hang it. Thanks, Dad.

    Quelle chance! Heureusement que ton Papa passait par là; je rêve moi aussi de trouver en brocantes d’anciennes planches de botanique, comme la tienne…

    I love the way you decided to display them. I may have to use that idea for a few things I have needed to hang. Your son is too cute by the way.
