Latin for Gardeners

When the postie came today I was in the front garden doing a bit of tidying. He didn't notice me so I gave him a bit of a fright when I suddenly appeared to grab a parcel out of his hand:
Latin for Gardeners by Lorraine Harrison
The first part of my Christmas spending to arrive. Although it came from the UK, this appears to the the US edition. I don't know if there are any differences apart from the missing Royal Horticultural Society logo on the front cover.

Inside it is packed with lovely botanical illustrations as well as the expected Latin info. As it says on the cover; "Over 3,000 Plant Names Explained and Explored".
And I do love a book with its own ribbon bookmark!


  1. Looks really interesting--and beautiful. Good choice!

  2. What a fascinating book it sounds.
