The cover of the book and the photos within are very nice. I believe the most alluring part of the book is the writing. There are quotes from well known people in history discussing the SEDUCTIVENESS of flowers. The writing is captivating. Reading a page or two is similar to being alone in a beautiful garden or simply gazing upon fresh flowers at the local news stand or grocery store. ENJOY! The author and photographer have done great jobs. Both are women I believe.

I bought this book on a whim because I liked the photo on the cover. I am a gardner and I picked it up as a gift for another gardening friend. She loved it, and as we looked through the pages, I found I also enjoyed the portraits of some of my favorite friends....flowers. The photos are well labeled, colored sorted and have a sensual feel, in the style of Georgia O'Keefe. The pictures invite you to veiw blossoms in a very intimate way. I ended up buying myself the book and another one for my mother (also a gardner!) for Mother's Day. Whether you're a gardener, a photographer, or artist, I'd recommend this book as a way to expand your view of what you see from afar most of the time.
