Let’s rejoice in blossoms: Blooming Flowers A Seasonal History of Plants and People by Kasia Boddy

In this time of Covid, my  walks take me past two neighborhood parks.  Each day, no matter how tired I am of this time in our lives, seeing the flowers that are in bloom brings some cheer.  Because my walks have been daily, I think that I am more aware of each bloom that fades as others come forth during the spring and summer seasons.

Blooming Flowers is a title that plays homage to this bounty.  It is organized by seasons and filled with gorgeous illustrations.  So, for example, for spring there are the daisy, the daffodil, the lily and more, while for summer we see the rose and sunflower among others and so on through the snowdrop and violet in winter.

The author’s love of all things floral shines through in this appealing title as does her deep knowledge of her subject.  Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest review.
