Twelve intimate portraits in words, of different flowers. The portraits follow the seasons, from snowdrops and primroses through to teasels and jasmine, and were written gradually over a couple of years, beginning with thoughts about nasturtiums that came one day unbidden in the garden. the colour of the cover comes from a line in 'Lilies': Those of you who come close enough we will dust with our golden pollen.
