I love this book! The author shares many kinds of flowers, fruits and vegetables and a few garden bugs along the way (ladybug, bumble bee and several butterflies). Some patterns are for knitting and some are for crocheting (all crochet patterns are charted and written out), which I love because up to now I have only crocheted flowers. Even though the author includes a caveat "serious botanists beware," I find the flowers delightfully detailed and realistic. I am working on a large rose at the moment and it looks wonderful already.
A really beautiful book with realistic patterns that are based on flowers like fuchsias, pansies and daffodils. Also a few cute patterns for fruits, vegetables and insects. After trying the crochet bumblebee pattern, which is listed as an "intermediate design," I would classify this as a book for people with ample knitting and crocheting experience, and a very good knowledge of pattern abbreviations and stitch types. There are a lot of beautiful patterns in here but the instructions are very brief and assume you know what you're doing. The bee turned out super cute!
