Happy Birthday, Carl von Linne!


Happy birthday to a botanist considered a local hero in Uppsala, Sweden where he received most of his education.  For those of you in Uppsala, we encourage to take a walk through the botanical gardens (pictured above) or stroll down one of the Linnaeus trails.   For readers elsewhere, we recommend a visit to a local park or garden, or, why not plant something to celebrate this day?
