This is a reference for people that would like some added detail in their floral metal studies. Covering a wide variety of plants with over a 100 precise black & white drawings of the leaves, seed pods, and complete plants.

From some common ones to some what strange ones and some that I have never heard of. If only for the ones that don't grow in our local area. From the often made Acanthus flower details,a single Hollyhock to the Great Bastard Woade.(used as a bird seed) to Iris, vetch and other weed plants now.

It isn't a reader as such but you will find your self finishing it after you pick it up in nothing else to find the old school intriguing names. Who known that corn or what was Indian corn, was at one time called Blew Turky wheat.

Raise the Dead!
        Walk on water!
                 Fix a broken heart!
and I'm working on the first two!
