Manuscript illuminations, miniatures and tapestries all depict the flowering trees and carpets of wildflowers of the medieval garden.

A fun companion to my A Medieval Herbal. Filled with lots of quirky, antiquated texts and trivia about flowers from that era. (My favorite was finally getting some background about the Fleur de Lys.)
