Sunshine In The Fields

Everyman's Wild Flowers and Trees. By Miles Hadfield. (Dent and Sons, (is.)

This is a book full of lovely and curious names. You learn about Blinks and Purging Flax and Little Mouse-Ear chickweed and Loose-Strife. You see pictures of them also, those honest botanical pictures with lots of green in them.

For all those arguments which begin " Isn't the Ragged Robin lovely:" " Yes, isn't it, it's Corn-Cockle actually;" here is the book of arbitration. For all those evenings of winter when the flames leap into the cold draught of the chimney, or the days of summer when clouds cover the sky and rain drips from the leaves here is the hook for the melancholy pleasure of remembering sunshine in the fields.
