Welcome to my blog! My name is Carri Daze but you call just call me Carri. You might have noticed I reblog random things. I don't reblog only certain things. In fact, this blog doesn't follow a certain theme. Enough about that though. Go ahead and talk to me. Hit that ask button and ask away. Submit whatever you want me to post! I love talking and meeting new people! Have a nice day! Love you!
This week we’re enjoying irises in Central Park. Jacob Bigelow (1786-1879) included the native iris, Iris versicolor or Blue Flag, in his “American Medical Botany,” 1817-1820. Bigelow noted its use as a cathartic and diuretic. “American Medical Botany” was an early American botanical as well as an early instance of color printing in America. The plates were actually printed in color, rather than being colored by hand afterwards.
Thanks to NYAM for letting us republish these cool and informative posts! Be on the watch for more in the future!
