About the authors

Writer and broadcaster Pat O'Reilly has wandered the countryside throughout Europe in search of wildflowers for more than 50 years; he has written more than 20 books on wildlife and countryside topics.

Sue Parker is a frequent contributor to countryside magazines, radio and TV programmes and has been studying and photographing wild orchids for more than 30 years; this is Sue's ninth book.

This book uses the commonly accepted term wildflowers, rather than wild flowers. Whatever your preference the flowers illustrated and described in this guide book are some of the most beautiful to be found in Wales.
