Author's interest in flower gardening obvious, but tedious to an average American gardener. "Elizabeth" revealed as a very privileged, pampered, self-absorbed woman, with very limited scope of interest-mostly herself. Story line does not even open up to enlighten one regarding the era and setting. Not really a story, just a diary of the shallow character.
