31. Man

‘Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature be your teacher,’ urged William Wordsworth in 1798. These words resonate strongly 218 years later as we celebrate life with plants, men, and words. From failed horticultural relationships to phallic plants, poets, artists, and a bunch of personal tales about men, we’ve got it covered. There’ll be wisdom and weirdness as usual, and plenty of testosterone (less usual).
