Gardens are reflections of paradise, sanctuaries from the daily grind. Every culture reflects the beauty of the garden, and Flora displays wonderful images of flowers and gardens from a wide variety of societies and historical periods.

Featuring 300 gorgeous images from Renaissance masters . . . unique prints and watercolors from Japan and China . . . and magnificent works by contemporary artists, Flora takes readers on a wonderful horticultural journey around the globe and through the ages. This lavish world tour is accompanied by prose and poetry which calms the mind and relaxes the body. [via]
