When veteran book publicist Kathryn Hall becomes an empty nester, she happily moves to a small village along the California coastline, gets a dog and starts a garden, realizing a longtime dream. Fashioning a lifestyle she had not anticipated, she has found herself beginning every morning out in the garden, in her PJs, ever since. Early on, she had an epiphany. "Everything I observed in the garden was also true in my life." She began taking notes. Over time and many gardens, and the creation of her award-winning gardening blog, she distilled her metaphorical observations into Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom from the Garden. In it she lovingly offers readers 52 profound and memorable insights, sharing a lifetime of heartwarming and poignant stories, both in and out of the garden, designed to encourage and spark each reader's own inner journey to find his or her own unique truth, joy and purpose.
