Here's the book description:
The beauty of a flower, and the beauty of a family. A garden and a child-the similarities between the two can be striking. Both require time and patience. Both call for a very special person to look after their needs and to consider their futures. And both will blossom when tended with a mother's love. This heartwarming collection of essays and stories-from beloved classics and modern favorites, authored by writing gardeners and gardening writers alike-celebrates the role of a mother's love in helping her garden and her children grow. Featuring selections from previously published material by noted garden essayists, as well as compelling excerpts from novels and memoirs, this volume is a touching tribute to mothers everywhere, whose perennial gifts of attention and care allow those they love to truly bloom.
