For those of you who have never set foot on Haverford’s campus, and I know there are a few of you out there, this campus is beautiful! Stunningly beautiful!! The first time I drove through the main gate 16 years ago, it took my breath away. It took me five years to land a job here and every once in awhile, usually sometime in May, it still does.
All waxing aside, I’d like to tell you about a new blog. Horticulturist Mike Startup, joined us six years ago after being downsized from Longwood Gardens. Their loss, our gain. Mike is a true plants man and puts the “wow” in every project he takes on. He came up with the idea of blogging about the arboretum and has just posted his first blog. I encourage you to take a look.
