Elegant and creative comments on the human condition through the medium of very precisely rendered flowers., a flower shepherdess and her faithful flower dog being tempted by a flower witch, the feelings of the Passionflower who lives only one day, little Alpine flowers exploring the rocks, an apothecary with little drawers of flower remedies for the dying flower before him.... Kreidolf's last book for Schaffstein, with watercolours beautifully reproduced.
