“My husband and I pinched ourselves. It was not planned. It just fell into our lap.”
Marjorie Blamey talking about how she got into illustrating books about wild flowers
botanists seem to know the best guides by theirs author(s) rather than their title. Hence it's always Rose and not The Wild Flower Key and indeed it's always Fitter, Fitter and Blamey and not Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe. Perhaps a testament to their quality.
