Description 

Any gardener would love the four images of flowers, birds, and butterflies in a set of 12 Jardin Botanique Writer's Notecards from Galison Green:

  • A red-bordered card shows "La Rose Marie-Louise", a butterfly, and quotes from a French text on the back.
  • A sunny yellow-framed card shows a daisies, poppies, sunflowers, and a hydrangea, and a bird,with French text about the sunflower (tournesol) on the back.
  • A green-framed card shows red zinnias, clematis, a colorful bird, and other plants with information in french about how the zinnias hale from Louisiana.
  • Salmon-colored cards show a pink hyacinth and butterfly with a French text on the back to the effect that for moralists and poets, a butterfly is the symbol of lightness and transience, but for naturalists, it is a perfect insect.

Delachénaye, Abécedaire de flore, Paris, 1811, and Jean Louis Marie Poiret, Leçons de flore, Paris, 1819-1820.
