Book Description

From Booklist Mitchell focuses on celebrating the aesthetic and metaphysical wonders that come together in garden settings. Nature's gifts inspire Mitchell's passion to share ways of looking to our gardens in every season to energize, nurture, and provide solace. Gardening tasks are integrated with references to and an examination of esoteric festivals, traditions, and myths associated with flora. Mitchell also presents a number of meditations to help guide the reader to a harmonious and tranquil state of being. An especially engaging segment is devoted to color, complete with a plant list keyed to various symbols and healing, for an inspired and inspiring slant on selecting plant material for a garden sanctuary.
