"The core teaching of this book is that plant study involves a deep penetration by the senses, mind and heart into the very activity of the formative forces. Dick van Romunde's book is the fruit of a life's work that spans more than four decades - his practice of plant observation as a meditative discipline. It is filled with precise botanical observations of many plants, and illustrated by excellent color drawings by Elly van Hardeveld. Yet, this is more than just another plant guide, for its emphasis is on the way that plant forms (morphology) reveal the working of formative forces in Nature."
