I regularly joke that any excuse to visit Fort Worth on the weekend is a good one, and events last weekend at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and the Botanic Research Institute of Texas gave excellent excuses. It’s going to take a while to discuss and chronicle everything, but in the interim, this beast was loitering out in front of the Fort Worth Museum of Science & History. How’s this for a piece of garden sculpture?
Alternately, on the other side of the museum entrance is an old friend from way back, and one of these days, I’ll have a space large enough and a wallet large enough to get one of my own. Fiberglass and resin tyrannosaurs are a dime a dozen, but where else outside of Texas would anyone see a life-sized Acrocanthosaurus?
