Maybe botanists should stay home on January 30?

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

J.H. Chesterton, Asa Gray, Gottlieb Haberlandt, Frederick Frost Blackman and Monroe Evans Gardner (hort professor) all died on this date.

I don't think we have any other date that contains this many deaths.

Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

I think so, too! LOL

Laceys Spring, AL(Zone 7a)

Wow! That's crazy, but I agree.

Dublin, CA(Zone 9a)

Too bad I'm not a botanist--would have been a good excuse to stay home from work! LOL Or do we think ordinary gardeners would be subject to the curse as well?

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

chuckle...I dunno. But it's definitely not a day for superstitious botanists to be out and about!

Calgary, AB(Zone 3a)

The Curse of the Groundhog maybe? :O
