This week travels across several realms of horticulture, art, and science as varied as wedding flowers by color to a physicist's quest for the 'Holy Grail'' of particles. Our summer cocktails owe their existence to plants, rare orchids find a sanctuary on the royal grounds, heavy rainfall leads to poor harvests in the Southeast US, and horse chestnut diseases are not linked. Burnished wood via Japan is enjoying its 15 minutes of fame in garden design, and a glimpse into the artist Ben Mendasky's studio is provided. Enjoy the full plate of assorted topics this past week!
