In Seasons in My Garden, award-winning writer Sr. Elizabeth Wagner reveals how tending to a garden in her Maine hermitage brought her to a deeper understanding of what it means to have faith, love others, and hope in the mercy of God. Her keen eye for the most intricate details of nature will help you find a path that brings you closer to God as well. Sr. Elizabeth Wagner believed God was calling her into deeper contemplation, so she built a hermitage in the Maine wilderness in order to ponder nature and become closer to God. Seasons in My Garden is a thought-provoking series of meditations, written as Sr. Wagner watched her own monastic garden progress through the seasons. Her reflections invite you to look over her shoulder as she tends to her beautiful garden and meditates on the mysteries of God’s creation and how it corresponds with her own life. In this captivating book, you will relate to Sr. Wagner as she struggles with feelings of a cold heart—just as her garden lay frozen under a foot of snow—and realizing that God was working to renew her spirit. As sudden storms threatened to destroy her hard work, Sr. Wagner will help you understand that careful preparation of the soul will help you resist the temptation to resent others. Seasons in My Garden intricately weaves insights from Sr. Wagner’s own growth through the seasons with spiritual guidance and an understanding that patient tending to your soul will help you grow into a beautiful garden that God can use to reflect his glory.

Marjorie Harris' legions of fans feel they've come to know a little of the popular writer's garden through her newspaper columns, TV and radio appearances and her bestselling books. Tiny, long and narrow, located in the midst of a bustling city, this is a garden that has seen fourchildren, annual spring floods, too much shade, too much basketball -- and a truly astounding array of gorgeous annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. Like every garden, urban, suburban, or rural, it is a work always under consideration. In Seasons of My Garden, Marjorie opens her garden gate to reveal a year in its rich and varied life. This is a garden dreamer's delight, bursting with full-color photographs of Marjorie's achievement taken over several years, the work of gifted photographer Andreas Trauttmansdorff. It is a volume of reflections, observations, and musings on the garden's (and the gardener's) response to the changing seasons. And of course, this wouldn't be a Marjorie Harris gardening book, if it didn't offer heaps of practical tips and advice that every gardener, regardless of experience, or location, can use every day of the year. Seasons of My Garden is classic Marjorie Harris. In her breezy, down-to-earth style, she takes us on a personal garden tour, where we can revel in successes, commiserate over failures, and discuss the tempting possibilities of a work that's always in progress. Designed by Gardening Life magazine's Alice Unger, and complete with an illustrated map of Marjorie's front and back gardens, Seasons of My Garden is sure to be this year's favorite gardening, title.
