A Photographic Guide to Garden Flowers, Wild Flowers and Trees

This site will appeal to gardeners, horticulture and biology students and anyone who enjoys looking at flowers and trees in the garden or countryside.  It explains how flowers work, how they have evolved and how they are now classified into families. Important families, such as Iris, Lily and Daffodil are illustrated. Botanical terms are explained using images and non-technical terms. An eBook has just been published by the author which gives much more information. The site also uses images and text extracted from  two iPad apps and a  print book, to explain how trees  are classified into families and to illustrate the difference between Broadleaf and Conifer trees.  It  includes some  simple keys, based on 12 characteristics such as leaf shape, buds, thorns, bark, catkins, cones, white flowers, and summer fruit, to aid identification.
