Nature has always been an inspiration for both scientists and artists alike. In this exhibition, Opuntia Visual (by Annabel Romero) showcases nature with a scientific touch. “From Seeds to Blooms” shows you all about the flora: from classification and morphology to cultural aspects and gardening, showcasing the beauty of fruits and blooms that we look forward to every spring and summer. In a friendly and approachable way, you will learn about the parts of a plant, gardening and cultural and culinary uses of plants, while enjoying artistic botanical drawings. A unique exhibition, that will not only please your eye with the beauty of nature but will also fill your mind with scientific and cultural information about plants and its secrets.
