*Clean up after a storm.
*Feel not obliged to make good use of every ripe fruit on the vine.
*Fiercely guard the seedlings.
*Judge not the flower by its bud.
*Resist the temptation to plant more than you can care for.
Early praise for Plant Whatever Brings You Joy:
"Plant Whatever Brings You Joy is an invaluable resource for understanding 'the garden' as a source of healing, growth, solace, joy, wisdom and understanding. This is a spiritually uplifting and wise book!" --Angeles Arrien, Ph.D., Cultural Anthropologist, author of The Four Fold Way and The Second Half of Life
"...as luscious as a peony in full bloom. Thank you for walking me in the garden of your heart." --Dawna Markova, Ph.D., author of I Will Not Die an Unlived Life and co-author of Random Acts of Kindness
"I loved it! It is ostensibly a book about Kathryn's life...her life in different countries and in different parts of America, her beloved daughter and her many gardens--yet it is so much more than this and touches the heart (my heart anyway) because of it." --The Nutty Gnome, blog, UK
"Simple and profound, it will help awaken your own graceful flowering!" --Brooke Medicine Eagle, author of Buffalo Woman Comes Singing and The Last Ghost Dance
"It is a testament to the skillful writing style, seemingly so easy and natural, and life affirming lessons to be considered that your readers will make this book their own; it is just that kind of book: a book to treasure." --Philip Bewley, Philip's Garden Blog
