The perfect book (for the moment)

Where are the good stories about plants?  A good story would help me remember their name and give me something fun to share when I’m out in the Gardens giving a tour.  Online searches were frustrating me, so I pulled my eyes away from the computer and stumbled into the Helen Fowler Library at Denver Botanic Gardens. Within minutes Deb Golanty, the Senior Librarian, asked me what I was looking for and minutes after that I was handed the perfect book to quench my thirst:  Stories and Legends of Garden Flowers by Vernon Quinn.  Will I ever be able to look at a zinnia again and not think of the human eye?
