The atrium of Texas Tech University's new Bayer Plant Science Building was filled
on Friday (Dec. 7) with a colorful and striking mix of flowers. Large flower arrangements were featured
as part of the final project for students in the Department of Plant and Soil Science's
2310 Floral Design class. This semester's sessions were led by Russell Plowman, an instructor of horticulture. The theme for this year's program was based on Shel
Silverstein's "The Bridge." Silverstein is an American writer known for his cartoons,
songs, and children's book, most notably "The Giving Tree."
