An interesting little book intertwining contemplation, self study, philosophy, history and all aspects of life in the garden: I enjoyed it immensely.
Ms. Dreher essays, set out in a 'seasonal' format, cover the length and breadth of the theme 'the garden as metaphor for life'. If you are looking for some understanding of why you, along with countless individuals throughout history, are obsessed with plants and gardening, want to know more about the symbolic nature of plants and the seasons, and want to actively nurture your 'inner garden', you will find this book an excellent place to begin.
