Flashback FridayPosted: June 24, 2016
During a recent trip to Philadelphia, I bought a mug of a William Bartram ‘s drawing of the Franklinia Altamalia. It was first seen in the South by John Bartram and his son William. Later William was able to collect some seeds and named the plant after a family friend, Benjamin Franklin. All the Franklin Trees that exit today are from those seeds, as all the plants in the wild have disappeared.
The mug inspired today Flashback, William Bartram.
