Meditations from the GardenBy Bobbi Junod ISBN: 978-0-9802088-3-2 Released June 2010
“It is unfortunate but true that not all of us can sit alone with nature. But lacking your own garden, “Do You Doubt the Daffodil?” invites you to share Bobbi and Molly’s garden through these vivid sketches and meditations. The plant and animal spirits weave nature like a web, and soon you are caught up in the magic of the seasons. These images and meditations are a joyous adventure and healing salve for anyone on a spiritual quest.”
Stephanie Landregan is the director of the landscape architecture program at UCLA Extension and has a small firm: Wild by Design.
Do You Doubt the Daffodil? is a bouquet of delightful and thoughtful bits of spiritual wisdom through the gardener’s eye accompanied by engaging drawings and photographs.Belonging on the bedside table so you can go to sleep with it at night and awaken with it in the morning, this book is not a page-turner it’s a book you want to get cozy with and revisit over a period of time.
Each page is a spiritual journey of wisdom, play, challenges, quirky humor, and comfort that weaves a personal and uniquely different path for the reader. Written in garden metaphor, one walks through a garden and the garden of one’s heart by reawakening to spring via newly sprouted seeds, grounding while smelling the tangy fragrance of pine, and experiencing the transformation in consciousness when an enclosure is held sacred. Bobbi Junod allows the reader to glimpse an inner landscape by witnessing her journey.
If you are looking for a prize rose along your garden path, Do You Doubt the Daffodil? provides the beauty and mystery that nature and spirit creates.
