Fashion week in London, New York, Milan, and Paris may have ended, but the importance of flowers and floral art is given its due in NY Times and Financial Times. Perhaps designers have the same thirst for spring like us gardeners. NASA publishes an image that underscores the impermanence of galaxies, even our own. On the conservation front, we have the alarm of declining crop diversity and an invasive flatworm that feeds on snails and earth-dwelling arthropods. Enjoy the spring coming around the corner, despite the ides of March being next week!
