Left in the midst of his flowers, at the close of

transformations.
Beginning with the chapter on the means of
securing the utmost variation in flowers, he
continues with the Iris, the Tigridia, the Ever-
lasting or Millinery Flower, the Larkspur, and
scores of other beautiful flowering plants, more
familiar in the average dooryard.
Having covered the range of his flower produc-
tions, Mr. Burbank proceds, in this volume, to
describe his improvements in ornamental palms
and climbing vines, lawn plants and lawn beautifi-
cation, concluding the book with a terse chapter
on practical hints for the betterment of field and
flower garden.
