"In this collection, Emily Carr celebrates wild flowers and shrubs. She wrote these 21 vignettes and short stories later in life, and they rekindled in her strong childhood memories of springtime flowers and blossoms. To Emily Carr, "buttercup yellow" declares "Spring is here!", Mock-orange blossoms are every bit as good as the real ones, Lady's-slipper has a "dainty jauntiness that dances out of leaf mould", and "Trillium is opulent, each flower a queen in her own right"." "Wild Flowers is illustrated with finely-detailed watercolours of wild plants by Emily Woods, one of Carr's childhood drawing teachers in Victoria." "Archivist and historian Kathryn Bridge introduces this previously unpublished manuscript and then concludes with a short essay on how Emily Carr wrote Wild Flowers, giving it context within the body of her published writings."--Jacket
