Love of flowers and all things green and growing is with many men and women a passion so strong that it often seems to be a sort of primal instinct. So writes Helena Rutherford Ely in this engaging book on hardy flowers that is both instructional and charming to read. Chapters include instruction on how to prepare the soil, design a garden, and how to plant a small plot. The middle section of the book includes detailed information on annuals and perennials and other flowers, all of which are lovingly and thoroughly described. And the final part includes accents that can further enhance the beauty of the garden -- water, walks, sundials, and others.
