It’s Thyme for a Little Hort Humor

Did you know that horticulturists are people who specialize in taking care of plants. The Mitchell Park Domes has a team of 8-10 horticulturists who work hard to ensure that the indoor and outdoor gardens are ready for your visit. In honor of these special folks (who we lovingly call “horts), here is some hort humor.

What did the big flower say to the little flower? What’s up, bud?

What makes some plants better at math than others? Square roots!

What’s the saddest plant? A Weeping Willow!
