Visitors to these islands in search of sun and sea are often surprised by the glorious wild flowers, abundant particularly in the spring and late autumn. Many are curious to know more about them. This book offers a means of identification on three levels.
For the complete beginnier there are illustrations of most of the more striking wild plants (and of a few cultivated ones). For those who wish to go further, there is help in the form of a botanical key (a basic skill for would-be botanists, and what better place than a sunny holiday island to learn it in). For those who already have this skill here is a key to all the wild flowering plants (except those waiting to be discovered).
