I was at the Huntington Gardens the other day, helping to teach a botanical drawing class (read: sharpening pencils) when I met the director, Jim Folsom, quite possibly the coolest person Ive met in the last few weeks. He spoke a lot about the “Architecture” of plants and how they are built, segmented (modules, anyone?) and super duper the hizzle for shizzle with no sign drizzle.
He also told us that green is at the center of our visual spectrum and that we can discern like, 2 million different shades and hues of green (Red is at the center of Hummingbirds’ visual spectrum, which is why they’re so into red stuff).

Anyway, that;s just an interesting tidbit of info I thought might blow your mind a little bit.

How many shades of green do YOU see?

Upcycle, please.
