"Flowers flow and bend on and off the paper as if still full of the life they had in the field." Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser With an artist's eye and an unwavering attention to detail, Lucile Parker meticulously examined several specimens of each flower in order to capture its vivacity in her magnificent watercolor paintings. In this way, Mrs. Parker was able to convey the essence of the fragile, delicate Birds-Foot Violet and the robust, color-splashed Indian Pink-even to those who have never seen the flowers themselves. A combination art book and easy-to-use botanical guide, this volume was assembled primarily for the flower lover rather than for the professional botanist. Indexes by common and scientific names and by family are provided, along with descriptions of the plants, their habitats and growing conditions, and the months during which they bloom.
