THE BRIEF LIFE OF FLOWERS is an ode to the flowers that fill our countrysides, our woodlands and our homes. Part nature writing, part memoir, Fiona Stafford explores Britain's flora, as well as the literature and lore that surrounds it.

From snowdrops and sunflowers, to pansies and poppies, this beautifully illustrated book is a delightful companion through the landscapes of Britain's floral history.
