This volume includes 47 full-colour illustrations (and also in black and white). Finely-detailed pencil sketches provide the perfect complement to delicate brushwork in this celebration of England's flowers and gardens - a golden haze of daffodils heralds the spring in Windsor Great Park; bluebells carpet a woodland glade in Surrey; in neat gardens by the River Thames in Oxfordshire, nasturtiums bask in the heat of high summer, while thistles stand guard at Hadrian's Wall. The exquisite colours and beauty of these flowers have been gathered by Catherine Hamilton as she wandered through the highways and byways of England. Her impressions of plants both wild and cultivated, and the places where they grew, have been captured in the pages of this book. One can almost smell the fragrance of the blooms and feel the warmth of the sun in her delightful illustrations, evoking as they do memories of the bright freshness of the English spring and the lazy heat of late summer.
