Unbeknown to most humans, all plants have a secret life and make friends with other plants and flowers in the gardens we cultivate, just like people do. In this charming children's story book, the author Douglas Thow lifts a lid on this secret world. The result is a chance for children to peek into the secret lives of flowers and learn about the ever-changing face of nature.
The author has given the flowers their own identity and language to be able to talk to one another. This will make his young readers take a closer look at the plants and how they grow and even create a budding gardener or two. The annual advent and transition through the seasons, in which flowers come and go, will help children to know about the cycles of life in a garden, and in the surrounding natural world too.

This is my first book. After a full-time career in political and financial services an active retirement has seen me take up different pursuits and spending more time in the garden and the outdoors. One sunny day in admiring how well my flowerbed looked I suddenly thought that if, according to ‘Doctor Dolittle', animals can talk to one another then why not flowers. After all they are all part of living world... and an idea was born.
