We are calling them "oddities" because we find it strange that Mr. Pember collected garlic, gourds and cactus skeletons. We find it fascintating that found in his collection is a boxwood stem/leaves on a card with a handwritten note stating that the boxwood comes from "Washington's garden" in Mount Vernon, VA. There's no date and only a "Presented by Mrs. A.D. Frisbie, Cambridge NY" (Alonzo D.; wife Frances L.) on the back. Also, very interesting is heather from Scotland, and a poppy anemone from Palestine. This round of specimens will be on exhibit until February 18, 2017. Please stop by the museum for a visit.
