This book has bling–3 gold medals and 5 silvers.

In this wise, down-to-earth book, Master Gardener and mindfulness meditation teacher Cheryl Wilfong lovingly offers us a rich bouquet of the Buddha’s teachings. Her gentle, friendly, and humorous tone creates a nurturing environment in which to practice mindfulness in our very own gardens. Wilfong invites us to stroll through our flowerbeds, appreciating them just as they are, and noticing the joy they bring us.

Beginning meditators will find practical easy-to-follow suggestions.
Lapsed meditators can refresh their practices.
And seasoned meditators will appreciate the variety of wisdom practices that can be transplanted into daily life in the garden.
