Organized in thematic chaptersMore In this charming gift book, master gardener Sonia Day brings together delicious tidbits from myth, history, botany, and plant lore to reveal how plants have seduced our hearts, minds, and bodies throughout the ages. Organized in thematic chapters that loosely follow the arc of a love affair, the book journeys from Innocence through such stages as Flirtation, Seduction, Lust, Deception, and Rapture. Scattered throughout are love potions, examples from the Victorian language of flowers, and charming anecdotes, all told in Days delightfully irreverent and conversational voice. Gorgeously designed and featuring full-colour photos and illustrations throughout, this is a sumptuous tribute to our enduring fascination with plants.
