CWS Flowers and the Garden Wayside Flowers (Gray/green back) 1928 Wayside Flowers (Gray/green back) 1928 48 - Modern farming practices, the ever-encroaching urban sprawl and pollution of one kind or another have all had a dramatic effect on wildlife in general and wild flowers in particular since the 1920s when this set was produced. Ironically motorway banks and verges have become a major haven for many species whose former habitats have been under pressure, but it was hedgerows along country lanes which the Co-op had in mind when they issued this set of Wayside Flowers. These contain lovely colour paintings of plants in bloom, some also with a close-up inset of the flower or seed, and descriptions on the back which include quaint medicinal uses and adverts for “Anglian Mixture” and “Tyneal Plug” tobacco. Some, like Orache and Sneezewort may be unfamiliar, but then there’s buttercup, daisy, primrose and violet, plus our old friend dandelion whose name comes from the French “dent-de-lion” or “Lion’s tooth”, although we believe many of our Gallic neighbours still call it by its alternative name “pis-en-lit” which translates as “wet-the-bed”, a reference to the plant’s diuretic properties. The cards are size 67 x 36mm.
