A different sort of Garden blog

Henry Shaw, founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, is blogging! The blog is called Travels with Henry Shaw. I suspect he's getting some help from the archivist or some other Garden staff -- they are posting up an entry from his travel journals each day. So far we've accompanied him from St. Louis to Niagara Falls to Turkey! The descriptions are delightful and I'm looking forward to following the rest of his trip.
