A wide variety of flowers, sprays and greenery is included in this book, usually in various combinations: daisies, tulips, peonies, dahlias, cornflowers, lilies, rose buds and fern, poppy and wheat, violets and forget-me-nots, shamrocks, heather, plus fowers with ribbons, in baskets, etc. There are also butterflies, bluebirds, bumblebees, owls, dragonflies and insects ot all sorts.
