Excerpt from Walks After Wild Flowers, or the Botany of the Bohereens

Introduction into the green lanes; Invitation to an acquaintance with the beauties of our wild-flowers, and their familiar histories. The love of flowers coeval with our race; We retain that portion of our primitive tendency as enjoyed in the paradise; it is an emanation of our best nature which ought to be encourage and educated. "Little-Roads," the "Bohereens" of the ancient celtic tongue are the best places to botanize; "Roadlets," as they may be translated give shelter to plants, and kindly invite the visitor who seeks their intimacy. - The natural order of grouping is recommended; It generalizes, while the linnæan system hardly does more than individualize the vegetable family. - The biography begun with the crowfoot-tribe of plants; Viz, Virgin's Bower, Meadow Rue, Feathered Columbine or Gold-Flowered Thalia. - Properties of the described plants: their adaptation in shrubberies or Parterres, etc.
