This one-of-a-kind book for gardeners explores the riches of the Catholic spiritual tradition in conjunction with all things gardening. Margaret Rose Realy--master gardener, retreat leader, and author of the Patheos blog "The Catholic Gardener," --offers meditations and scripture passages on a spiritual theme for each month, reflections on the liturgical seasons and feasts, and delightful stories of saints who have special relevance to gardening. Readers also will discover the connection between the conversion of St. Paul and the canna seed, how the flight into Egypt was saved by a miraculous growth of seed, and the many miracles that made St. Brigid patroness of farmers.
Additionally, there are creative ideas for garden design, practical tips and techniques, suggestions on unique plants, and a table of biblical plants. Gardeners at any level of proficiency and dedication will be enchanted by what they find in this extraordinary book.
