flowers and poetry

While traveling throughout England I would stop at a few quaint villages. I can't remember the name of the village or town... it may have been Faversham. Spotted a small used bookshop down a side street. Took a browse and found this palm size book. Tell The Wish Of Thy Heart In Flowers: Language and Poetry of Flowers; Milner and Sowerby 1860; top, side and bottom edge gold gilt. It's filled with interesting references of flowers and how they can be used in poetry and the poems inside are a treat. Not bad for £1! -JW
