  • this book is a beautiful book. I thank Amazon for help us to reach out to places and shops we can not get to our selves.

  • Wonderful paintings and descriptions. Definitely too big to carry in a backpack but I can enjoy this over the winter months and perhaps be more aware on my fair weather hikes in Indiana.

  • Not what I expected. More of a book of artwork than a book identifying wildflowers.

  • BEAUTIFUL!!!! The painting of each flower are simply amazing! They are so true to life, you feel you could almost touch them. Each description of each plant is detailed yet very easy to understand. A great read!

  • great illustrations and text

  • I have admired MaryRose's painting for years and checked out this book at the library numerous times. The pictures are true to life and show such detail! Now I own the book and can look at the pictures any time.
    It is a good comparison if you have flowers and plants to identify in your area.

  • I love this book. It is not a field guide, yet it contains much information about the flowers. There are beautiful paintings of them and their "friends" and charming stories about the artist and her husband. It is a book about wildflowers that you sit with and become totally enraptured with. I love that it is arranged by the date that Maryrose found the wildflower. I love being able to follow the arrival of the flowers with each season. Great book!

  • I came to this page to get the URL to recommend the book to a friend. I have owned the book for many years and sat with it for many hours enjoying the beauty of Mary Rose Wampler's work and soaking in the information that was provided by her husband, Fred. Especially anyone who lives in Indiana and enjoys wildflowers should own this book. There could be no better reference if one wanted to build a seasonal blooming garden or a butterfly garden.
