Albany to hold a virtual Tulip Festival - Times Union
The 72-year-old tradition dates back to July 1, 1948 when Mayor Erastus Corning II passed a city ordinance declaring the tulip as Albany's official flower. In the spring of 1948, Albany officials asked Queen Wilhelmina of Holland to designate a variety of tulip to be Albany’s official flower. She chose the ‘Orange Wonder,’ a Mendel strain of tulip, now also known as the “The Tulip of Albany.” The city held its first Tulip Festival was held in May 1949.

Harvard's Garden of Glass Flowers Blooms Again
An exhibition of their beautifully rendered jellyfish, octopi, anemones, and other creatures is currently on view at the Corning Museum of Glass. Harvard also displays Blaschka marine invertebrate models in its Museum of Comparative Zoology.
Harvard’s Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, named for Elizabeth C. and Mary Lee Ware, who financially supported its creation, debuted in own its gallery back in 1893. At the time, botanical models were made of papier-maché or wax and lacked the translucent qualities of living plants. To rectify this, George Lincoln Goodale, a Harvard professor and the first director of the school’s Botanical Museum, commissioned the Blaschkas to make the glass models in 1886.

On a recent weekend visit, viewers lined nearly each case, peering through the glass at the leaves and petals, some rendered with realistic decay.

The cases are original, but have been refurbished with less reflective glass. Overall, the Victorian aesthetic of the old gallery — which was arranged a bit like a tactile herbarium — has been preserved, only now with better lighting, brighter walls, and less dust. The revamped cases are also more accessible so that the displays can be rotated. Pollinators are featured in the inaugural installation, and there are plans for the “rotten fruit” studies of plant disease to go on view in the future. The gallery’s new design also considers how the study of botany... (Hyperallergic)Feb 3, 2016
