Coffee Break Collection 19 - Plants and Flowers by Various ( - ).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/coffee-break-collection-19-plants-and-flowers-by-various/

The Librivox Coffee Break Collections are themed anthologies, selected and read by Librivox readers. Each short piece is fifteen minutes long, or less -- perfect for coffee breaks, commutes and work outs. Essays, prose, fiction, non-fiction, poetry -- who knows what gems will be uncovered? Spring is the time we see plants and flowers, dormant over the cold winter months, burst into life; and they make their appearance here. ( Lynne Thompson)
