Naming the Rose PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Naming the Rose free pdf Of all flowers, roses exude a special mystique and romantic beauty. Often a rose will bear a person's name, for the breeding of roses is an art, and like all artists, the raisers of roses enjoy dedicating their creations to people they love or admire. But who was Madame Hardy? Bettina? Lorraine Lee or Henri Martin? Vita Sackville-West asked this question many years ago and rose-lovers are still asking. Here, at last, in an elegant, timeless and beautifully illustrated edition, is the answer. Anyone who loves these delightful flowers will find this collection of stories as beautiful as the bloom itself.
