On the tenth day of book gifting, Rural Mom suggests:
Garden Blessings: Prose, Poems and Prayers Celebrating the Love of Gardening
One thing I tend to find in common with all avid gardeners and farmers I know is not just a deep love for the great outdoors and all of nature’s wonders, but that they are often quite contemplative people who make time to experience the daily joys of life.
Garden Blessings is an eloquent tribute to the wonders of the garden, a place where our souls are nourished and memories grown. June Cotner’s books comprise a balance of about 20 percent classic and famous writers and 80 percent lesser-known, award-winning writers, uncovering many selections not found anywhere else. Ranging from childhood memories of planting and harvesting to celebrations of the changing seasons to contemplation on the joyful art of gardening, Garden Blessings is a moving collection of poems, prayers, and reflections that reminds us of what really matters — making and sharing memories.
This uplifting collection of readings, prayers and poems is a lovely treat for gifting everyone on your shopping list inspiration. Whether you have a love of gardening or simply appreciate the beauty of nature, the wisdom contained within the pages of Garden Blessings will be a true delight to read!
