Dandelion

holly

"Le Pissenlit, ou La Dent de Lion... Il y a beaucoup d’autres remedes où cette plante entre communément, & qu’il seroit trop long de rapporter ici…. Il ne faut pas regarder ce que j’avance ici comme la vaine déclamation d’une Philosophie purement spéculative. J’en appelle à la triste expérience de nos voluptueux Sybarites, à la tenacité de leurs vapeurs, à la foiblesse de leurs nerfs, à toutes ces petites maladies de détail qui les minent peu-à-peu, & qui les tuent avant le tems [sic].”

From Canadian Wild Flowers. Painted and Lithographed by Agnes Fitz Gibbon, with Botanical Descriptions by C. P. Traill. Montreal: John Lovell, 1869.

Trillium

holly

“In deep ravines, or rocky islets, the bright snow-white blossoms of the Trilliums greet the eye and court the hand to pluck them."
