A Little Book of Flowers
This fascinating celebration of the tulip reads like a "very smart love letter to cultivating beauty" and features 40+ vintage-inspired full-color botanical illustrations (Seattle Times).
"Delightful...Next time you are lucky enough to be someone's houseguest, consider arriving with a bouquet of either one of the Little Book of Flowers." --The New York Times
After a drab winter, tulips triumphantly emerge from the spring garden, a colorful symbol of rebirth. These humble bulbs have been celebrated, stolen, carried across oceans; at times they have been considered as precious as rubies. Happily for us, these days they are affordable luxuries--and easy to grow as well.
This charming little hardcover book includes:
- 40+ full-color botanical illustrations
- basic botany and history
- everything you need to know to grow gorgeous blooms in the garden
- tips for creating beautiful arrangements
- quotes, lore, and notable gardens and growers
