A novel by Clifford D. Simak: All Flesh Is Grass. This is one of his good and strange ones from the Sixties.
It began suddenly: without warning, an invisible barrier surrounded the small town of Millville. No one could pass through it. It walled the town on all sides- even above and beneath. Within this enclosure other strange things began to happen, like the weird behavior of some of the town's most disreputable inhabitants. Then there was the appearance of the cordless telephones- without wires or dials, they offered instant communication with some sort of bizarre being who had 3 distinctly different personalities and as many voices. And then there were the flowers- the beautiful, purple flowers. Their part was the strangest of all: for they were intelligent and the cause of all this.
