Plant Delight's new catalog: zany as ever
Tony Avent, proprietor of Plant Delights Nursery in Raleigh, N.C., has just issued the latest in his politically incorrect plant catalogs.
The theme this time, for the renegade plant collector, is a Gardener's Tea Party.
I can spot Nancy Pelosi as the Red Queen, Sarah Palin as the Cheshire Cat and Michelle Obama as Alice, plus Massachusett's new senator, Scott Brown, in Playboy bunny ears.
Can you figure out the rest of the characters?
The cover was again drawn by commercial cartoonist Jack Pittman.
Some of his previous covers are available, for $20, on a T-shirt.
Avent's politics can obscure the fact that he is an extraordinary plant collector and offers a tremendous variety of plants.
