‘Collies and Toucans and Bugs, Oh My!
Presented by Kathy Allen, Librarian, Andersen Horticultural Library
“The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat…” Nonsense poet Edward Lear also painted exquisite portraits of birds, several of which are represented in Andersen Horticultural Library’s extensive holdings on birds. Dogs, chickens, and pigs pop up unexpectedly in the pages of vintage seed catalogs, and a new 100-year project seeks to document plants and animals that occur at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Enjoy a virtual tour of animals to be found in “Andersen Natural History Library.”
