The Language of Flowers: An Anthology of Poetry, Prose and Paintings

 

This coffee table book (or, in my house, a guest powder room book) blends art prints of flowers with poetry or a novel excerpt about the flower.  Copies of these pages would also make lovely art for garden-themed decor.

Excerpt:

Lilium

Field Lily

Humility

Down in a meadow fresh and gay,

Picking lillies all the day;

Picking lillies both red and blue,

I little thought what love could do.

Where love is planted there it grows,

It buds and blossoms like any rose,

It has so sweet and a pleasant smell,

No flowers on earth can it excel.

Traditional Rhyme
