Beautiful photography. Good tips. However, it is one major advertisement for Floret Farms and a showcase for the author (she is in basically 95-99% of the photographs, a flower among her flowers and arrangements.

I can't wait to dive into this book because I've seen the raving reviews and it doesn't disappoint. The photos of the flowers are gloriously sumptuous. The reader will be please even if he is not a gardener or florist. I've always grow flowers in my backyard and this book gives me more choices and teaches me how to extends the life of the picked blooms. One little let down is the absence of carnation which is my favorite picked blooms. It got sweet williams and snaps but that's a runner up for me. This is a beautiful book worth waiting for!
