Years later, over half her lawn had been replaced with flowers, blooming shrubs and native trees. Every minute spent planning, planting, weeding, mulching and harvesting connects her with the timeless rhythms of nature. The process is both joyful and meditative, and offers lessons that apply to life. One of the biggest rewards came when neighbors began stopping by to comment on the transformation. Their delight spread the Zen of the garden far beyond her front yard. A gorgeous collection for every serious gardener, hobbyist, plant lover, and anyone looking for a moment of peace during their day, The Zen of Gardening reminds us of the power of a single tree or flower to enrich our lives, and to make us happier, healthier, calmer, and more loving.
