I thought I had lost this book for a while (apparently it was only misplaced on our bookshelves). Walter Crane's artwork is tremendous of course. Each flower is represented in fairy form and dress and you just want to gaze at the pictures. Flora calls the flowers forth and first to come are the snowdrops. All through the summer the flowers are arrayed, finally ending with the Autumn blooming mums and the Christmas Rose. I've included the illustrations of the flowers that we have in our own garden.
I have one husband, three children, two cats and a house full of too many books to count. I love to read, ride my bike, bake, develop my own photographs, and I've been known to neglect all housework to play with my kids.
