Nursery Rhyme: I Know A Little Pussy

I know a little pussy,

Her coat is silver gray

She lives down in the meadow,

Not very far away.

Though she is a pussy,

She’ll never be a cat,

She is a pussy willow.

Now what do you think of that?

Meow, meow, meow, meow,

Meow, meow, meow, skat!

Murals galore.

Gorgeous murals adorn the walls of the herbarium: they welcome you in the stairway and keep you company while at work. Several talented students, artists and scientists created these pieces in the 1970s and early 80s. Each artists’ unique style and accurate portrayal of the subject material is stunning.
