Summary

The islands of Britain and Ireland hold a rich heritage of plant folklore and wisdom, from the magical yew tree to the bad-tempered dandelion. Here are traditional tales about the trees and plants that shape our landscapes and our lives through the seasons. They explore the complex relationship between people and plants, in lowlands and uplands, fields, bogs, moors, woodlands and towns.

I enjoyed these stories very much.

most of the tales were new to me so hearing them has broadened my folklore scope. And the narrator is pleasant as well as well versed in the languages of the ares.
