Shakespeare’s birthday is 23 April. His works make many references to flowers.  A timely one from Love’s Labours Lost is:

When daisies pied, and violets blue

And Lady-Smocks all silver white

And Cuckoo buds of yellow hue

Do paint the meadows with delight.

On this in-depth guided tour, we will see all of these, and many others, and relate the flowers to Shakespeare’s works.
