Wild Flowers on the Roadside

"What is that flower? How often do we ask that familiar question as we speed along the highway, or stop for a picnic, or rest in a shady nook? One does not need to be a botanist, or a flower collector, to answer that question. There are hundreds of wild flowers common to our highways, fields and woods which anyone can identify with just a little prompting. And such fun it is! In fact it can be a family game in which the children can join and it is more interesting and instructive than counting white hourses, red barns or mail boxes." 

Blue Book Company, 1956
