The sweetest, most beautiful (and photogenic) book of wildflowers...
"The British countryside contains an abundance of wild flowers, and in a work of this extent careful selection is necessary. The 200 species described and illustrated in this book are those most easily accessible and most likely to be found during a walk in the open country. Shortage of space has also enforced some curtailment of the descriptions of the various species. The descriptions given are, however, sufficient to ensure easy recognition, and the shapes of leaves and parts of flowers are indicated as far as possible in ordinary language. To prevent any possible confusion an illustrated introduction describes the forms of flowers, and an illustrated glossary is also provided. Half of the illustrations are in full colour."
A companion for vintage lovers and nature lovers alike, a book I keep a copy of in my personal collection and use often as it has such a warming history, it is so eloquently written, and is a pure joy to flip through while sitting in the garden with a nice cup of tea.
- This is a used, vintage item that is in very good condition. It has a worn quality with minor bits of wear and tear that only add to its uniqueness and charm. Please keep this is mind when purchasing.
