A celebration of the healing nature and delights of gardens, written by well-known garden writer Lynda Hallinan, beautifully photographed by Sally Tagg, and packaged in a stunning hardback.
Gardens teach us to live in the moment. They nourish us, provide solace in grief and offer sanctuary from the stresses of modern life.
In a celebration of the healing power of nature, New Zealand gardening guru Lynda Hallinan focuses on the gentle delights that bring joy to our backyards, from birdsong to seasonal beauty.
Slowing down, letting go, working in harmony with nature and cherishing the accidental pleasures, from self-sown seedlings to bumblebees sleeping in dahlia blooms: these are the things that make our hearts sing.
Lynda also writes about the way memory and tradition connect us to special plants and places, and the thrill of sharing a love of gardening with friends and family.
