"The title alone is the key to this finely rendered, witty book. It is part science, part aesthetics, part spirit. I can't think of another book that is at once so personal and yet so downright botanical. You don't even have to like flowers to enjoy it."--John Hanson Mitchell, author of Ceremonial Time
EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION of this charming and informative book on the "inner life" of flowers: as new!
