Victoria Jones kennt von Geburt an nur Waisenhäuser und Pflegefamilien. Wie ein Gegenstand wurde sie von einer Bleibe zur nächsten weitergereicht. Schon als Kind hat sie sich deshalb zu einer wortkargen, menschenscheuen Kratzbürste entwickelt. Einzig für Blumen interessiert sie sich, und für deren Sprache, denn die hat sie von Elizabeth gelernt, dem einzigen Menschen, von dem sie je Liebe erfahren hat. Mit achtzehn Jahren ist Victoria obdachlos und ganz auf sich allein gestellt – bis sie einen Job in einem kleinen Blumenladen findet. Auf dem Markt der Blumenhändler lernt sie schließlich einen jungen Mann kennen. Erstaunt stellt sie fest, dass Grant ebenfalls die Sprache der Blumen versteht. Gegen ihren Willen keimt in Victoria nach langer Zeit wieder Hoffnung: auf Liebe, auf eine Familie, auf ein Zuhause ... Doch ihre Vergangenheit, ihre schmerzvollen Erinnerungen an Elizabeth holen sie immer wieder ein. Kann es Grant gelingen, sie trotzdem zu lieben – so unberechenbar, so verstockt, so verletzlich, wie sie ist?

Pot pourri, made with colorful, fragrant plants and carefully selected herbs and spices, recreate evocative scents to remind us of Nature's fragrance. Carol Petelin, author of the successful The Creative Guide to Dried Flowers, has drawn on her wealth of experience to provide the ultimate guide to drying and using flowers, plants, and herbs in a myriad of creative ways. First, she describes plants that can be most successfully grown, even by those with limited garden space, and explains how to best harvest and dry them. The next section covers the art of dried flower arranging. There is advice on working with different combinations of color and form to create arrangements in containers, bouquets, posies, garlands, and swags. She tells how to gather and press flowers and herbs and offers a variety of imaginative projects for them. The final section is devoted to pot pourri. The author includes recipes for deliciously fragrant mixtures and describes how pot pourri, scented flowers, and spices can be used to make many delightfully fragranced items. There is a list of sources for herbs and essential oils. Lavishly illustrated throughout with Simon McBride's color photographs and decorated with some of Edith Holden's own drawings from The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady and The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady, The Country Diary Book of Flowers will inspire all those who wish to practice the art of dried flower arranging and to make unusual and attractive gifts for their homes and friends.

This lavishly photographed book from renowned floral designer Ariella Chezar provides step-by-step instructions for 39 seasonal floral arrangements and projects that celebrate the splendor of flowers, the bounty of the changing seasons, and the wild beauty of nature in your home.

Seasonal Flower Arranging follows Mother Nature's lead to create dazzling arrangements from the distinctive gifts of the changing seasons, from a charming spring bouquet for Mother's Day to a bold garland for a summer wedding, and from a bounteous Thanksgiving table to a wintery holiday wreath. There are arrangements for seasonal holidays, special occasions, or just everyday life featuring tulips, roses, peonies, dahlias, and other flowers that are easily found at farmers' markets, local shops, or grown in your own backyard. The book includes detailed instructions on how to re-create 39 floral designs, plus the inspiration and techniques to allow you to create your own original art out of nature.
