The Martin. Not as eloquent as Mary Shelley, perhaps, but it captures my experience with Dracula orchids perfectly.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. I'm reading her most famous work now. I'm amazed at how good it is, despite the antique prose and sentiment. It's not at all about the dangers of science, as it's been spun to be for the last who knows how many decades. It's about man's inhumanity to people who are different.

The quote I posted before isn't from the book, by the way.

Well that's disappointing. I was looking forward to reading it in the book. I have the book but holding off on it till my daughter is old enough to enjoy it with me.

I don't think it's a children's book at all. Maybe early teens. The 1974 movie from which I took the quote is also probably not appropriate for kids.

A long wait but worth it for her, I'll have to read it on my own.

Default Weened Haul

Added a Dracula Olmosii to my burden over the weekend. I saw one at a greenhouse that was nearly dead from the heat. Not sure if I can save it, but I figured it was worth $20 to try.

It's from The Martian. Read the book, but haven't seen the movie yet. It does look good, though.

BTW, one of my Draculas is about to bloom. I'll post pictures as soon as it opens up. Can't wait!
