One of the most appealing, as well as one of the easiest, ways of bringing a breath of summer in to the home is to use dried and pressed flowers to make an almost endless variety of attractive arrangements and designs. 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

A literary pilgrim : an illustrated guide to Britain's literary heritage by Edward Thomas( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Thomas is best known as one of the great poets of the First World War. But there is another memorial to him: The Literary Pilgrim in England first published in 1917 is his finest prose work and has now become a classic. "The book takes the reader on a journey along the highways and byways of literature," says Michael Justin Davis in his introduction. With Edward Thomas as our guide we go in search of the homes and landscapes of some of our most famous writers. Shelley is seen eating "hard eggs and radishes and rolls at Eton"; Tennyson's starling "claps his tiny castanets" across the rectory garden in Lincolnshire; Blake's chimney-sweeper's cry is heard echoing through the streets of London; Emily Bronte runs across "my dear moorland" in Yorkshire; Gilbert White sows his kidney beans in the lower field garden at Selborne; and Burns walks forth "to view the corn an' snuff the caller air" outside England in the Western Lowlands of Scotland. Among the many other famous writers included are Keats, Aubrey, Cobbett, Hardy, Belloc, Coleridge, Clare and Wordsworth. The original edition is now illustrated with portraits, engravings and paintings directly related to the text. The specially commissioned photographs by Simon McBride show the landscape and the places as they are now in all their beauty and subtlety. - Jacket flap
