In Some Flowers, originally published in 1937, Vita Sackville-West took the novel step of choosing 25 of her favourite flowers and describing their appearance, origins and characteristics - and the best ways to grow them - in a series of brilliantly expressive pen portraits which retain their vitality over 70 years later. In this fresh edition of the book the exquisite watercolours of Graham Rust provide a perfect marriage of words and images, clearly demonstrating at last the accuracy and ingenuity of Vita Sackville-West's descriptions. This glorious second flowering of her personal, erudite and poetical book will not only delight her many admirers but also guarantee her reputation with a new generation of gardening enthusiasts.

"In this lovely reissue boasting full-page watercolors, Graham Rust's very capable artistry provides a more fitting accompaniment to Sackville-West's eclectic choices." --"Booklist"
"Sackville-West is one of those writers who virtually never wrote a dull word of nonfiction, and this 1937 gem is certainly no exception...the watercolors certainly make for a very attractive package." --Stevereads
