A lyrical photographic essay celebrating flowers in essence. It's about the intense joy and pleasure one can deliver from the simple, yet thoughtful arrangement of flowers - the way even a few simple stems can transform a room, create a mood, revive a flagging spirit. Above all, it's a book about looking at flowers, and about picking and placing them so their strength and fragile beauty can truely be seen.
