From the Mojave Desert in the USA to the Italian Dolomites, and from South Africa's Cape National Park to the Stirling Ranges of Australia, this book showcases the most spectacular displays of wild blooms on the planet. Each site account begins with a locator map and info panel detailing timing, key species etc. This is followed by an informative and readable account by the expert author (who has personally visited nearly all of the sites covered) accompanied by a handful of stunning images of each location showing off the displays of flowers. In addition there are chapters on the animal life that can be found at these sites, and on the conservation status of the locations covered in the book. Many people travel widely in search of spectacular displays of flowers, but are guided only by word-of-mouth information, or by what organised tours are available. This book sets out to rectify this gap. However, it aims to be much more: the most 'flowery' places in the world are exceptionally spectacular at their best, and the beautiful photography in the book allows a broad audience to enjoy these sights without even leaving the house.

Like the Wild Flower that grows in the wild, in the valley and in the meadow and atop a hill or floats on the river, poetry as well as the stories grew from within me naturally – they are not implants from without . The urge to write was natural, arising out of my experiences in life and how they got entwined with my emotions – my trepidations like the first time when I as a child hesitantly neared the water front and dipped my foot into the cold icy water, how these struck a chord within me and urged me to express my feelings. Slowly like the way a flower matures, the onslaught of varied experience moulded my thoughts and inspired my poetry. It continued to articulate my joy of unfurling the curtains of perception and sharing the joy of living and sometimes the pain that came with it. Life has so much to offer and often so much to take away from us all . Our convictions, our doubts, our joy and our sorrow – all of them blend together in our quest for that ever eluding meaning such feelings hold for us -and what could be more beautiful and more lyrical than to express our innermost thoughts through poetry. Like they say, poetry is magical!
