In this charming and informative book the reader catches a glimpse into a past era when a lady's fan was employed to send messages of enticement, love, rejection, and more, without uttering a word. Flowers also imparted silent meaning to their recipients as well as how and when they were given. Imagine a wedding bouquet with flowers selected according to their meanings-a very personal tribute to the bride. The author has included an excellent selection of poems and quotes with a floral theme and a list of flowers that may be eaten.
Roses being perhaps the most popular of flower, they have their own chapter, and recipes for delicacies like Rose Petal Jam and Strawberry Cake with Creamy Rose Frosting.
An array of other recipes will leave readers with mouth-watering choices, from soups to muffins and cakes, among others.
Being a woman is a blessing-and a challenge. Juggling all those roles-daughter, mother, sister, friend, colleague, wife, and more-isn't easy, but with God's grace it's possible.
Mrs. Hawkins wears many hats-one is found in this book- a way to relax, laugh, and provide enjoyment for all ages-loving the child within.
Her kindly advice is to slow down and "smell the roses" in this busy world.
