"Sinclair's expansive and beautifully crafted vision honours the blessings of sunlight, earth, water, and air found in our own gardens, and, in so doing, awakens us to a deep love and compassion for planet earth, the original garden paradise
This is a celebration of the beauty of our gardens and of the deep lessons and meanings they whisper to us as we spend time with them. For Sinclair, gardening is about much more than planting bulbs and thinning perennials; it is about more than weeding beds and maintaining walkways, more than sculpting shrubs and trimming trees -- though it can involve all of these things. Gardening is a deeply spiritual experience and practice. Like all spiritual practice, it is ultimately about connection. It is about balance and harmony, about memory and hope, about healing and acceptance, and even, in this increasingly paved-over world, about revolution. Lavishly illustrated with stunning, full-colour photographs, Sinclair's expansive and beautifully crafted vision honours the blessings of sunlight, earth, water and air found in our own gardens, and, in so doing, awakens us to a deep love and compassion for planet earth, the original garden paradise -- a precious gift from the source of all love and beauty."--Pub. desc
