Description

From saucy daffodils in the front hall to daisies entwined in a young girl's hair, flowers bring us joy every day. Colour photographs as fresh and comely as the blooms themselves pay tribute to these gifts from nature. Trace the meaning and language of flowers in history and mythology for moments of good fortune (lavender), congratulations (laurel), love (rose), and hope (snowdrop). Mark life's milestones with a floral celebration: tiny white blossoms capture the innocence of a new baby being Christened, so decorate the pews with pretty lily of the valley, narcissus, and miniature roses tied up in a lacy ribbon. Place seasonal touches all through the house--snowdrops, scillas, grape hyacinths and early-blooming bulbs all bring a touch of spring inside. Give flowers tender care with the invaluable and practical advice on cutting, arranging, and preserving them for delightful corsages, nosegays, and floral keepsakes. And, when you're trying to decide on a favourite to pick, look through the lavish gallery of flowers, all arranged by colour.show more
