Durian Fruit from a Large Tree, Sarawak, Borneo, Marianne North, 1876
Marianne North (1830-1890) was an English biologist and botanical painter who traveled for her studies to Jamaica, Brazil, Japan, India, and many more throughout her life. Kew Gardens claims that their North Gallery is “the only permanent solo exhibition by a female artist in Britain.”
Hope you can find some change somewhere! Are you on vacation? Have a great time, if you are! If you’re on a business trip, have a decent time!
Thank you! I’m on a mini-vacation checking out the fall colors in the mountains. I’ve got an apple and a few doritos in my room. I think I’ll just go to bed. I’m not driving through the mountains at night looking for snacks.
It’s almost midnight and I’m in a small town nestled in a beautiful mountain valley. There is nothing open at this time of night. There isn’t a 7-11 around here. There’s a motel vending machine. That is it. I can’t eat scenery.
