Something completely different!
In 2006, I was offered a dream job. The director of Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida, had been carrying around my first children’s book, Unseen Rainbows, Silent Songs: The World Beyond Human Senses, for a decade. He said he loved the way the book brought science alive. Would I be interested in writing new signs for the gardens?
Would I!?! Of course, it didn’t hurt that I received the call during a snowstorm. While I was staring out my window at a horizontal blizzard, I was told that if I wanted the job, I would have to come to Sarasota and get to know the gardens.
I got to know the gardens and here are some of its new signs. Click on any one of them for easier reading.
