The RHS Book of Flower Poetry and Prose
by Charles Elliott
This is a lovely book to give to one’s self or as a gift to a garden lover. Collected in here are poems or prose about more than fifty flowers, everything from the humble daisy to the violet to the marigold, the harebell poppy and many more. The illustrations are superb-colorful, detailed and engaging. The verse and prose is from everyone from William Carlos Williams to Wordsworth to Longfellow and many writers both very well known and new to me.
I highly recommend this one. Read it to enjoy some nature while you are spending more time at home.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
