Interesting information for when you are considering buying flowers for people in your life. Considering the implications of the possible subliminal messages when you receive flowers. The illustrations are beautiful and detailed.

WONDERFUL! 22 Mar 2002
By "neko_kitty" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
...This book states very clearly that it is written about PLANT LORE, and that is just what it is about. Persons not interested in this subject will not like this book, plain and simple. Those who are enlightened, and collect books on harmless myths and superstitions will enjoy it. Those who yearn for the magickal associations of flora, fauna and fae will also love it, of course!

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
i thought this book was really great! me and my friend went through it and saw some really cool spells we wanted to try. like me, i wanted to try the one to remove freckels. or the one to become the same size as a fairy. the only thing i wish it included was if you could accually try the stuff and if anything was poisionsous. over all it was great for kids like me who like magic and stuff like that
