So I share my birthday with Maria Sibylla Merian… never heard of her before, but happy birthday to us! :)
And incase you didn’t know who she was, Wikipedia says that she was a Swiss naturalist and a scientific illustrator, as well as a descendant of the Frankfurt branch of the Merian family, who founded one of Europe’s largest publishing houses in the 17th century. (she was born in 1647… just a point of reference)
And in other birthday news, Marvin Gaye would have celebrated his 74th birthday today… so happy birthday to us!
This has been an April 2nd birthday post. :)
