And Now Number One, The Larch…The Larch

Okay, it’s not a larch. In fact it’s a Cedrus Libani, or Cedar of Lebanon. And it’s not an actual one, it’s a print. Here, take a look at it:

Cedrus Libani Print The original comes from a book entitled The Pinetum Britannicum first published in 1884 and featuring the work of natural artist Edward Ravenscroft. Subscribers to the original three-volume set included Queen Victoria and Napoleon III. The book is legendary among conifer fans. I also happen to think that this beautifully rendered 18″ x 23″ unframed reprint would look handsome on nearly any wall.

So how much for the superfantastic look? Well, originally it would have set you back $238.00. The price has now been slashed, however, to a far more affordable  $166.60 ($149.94 for members) at the New York Botanical Garden shop.

Now that’s an idea that could grow on me…and all my Monty Python quoting friends.
