This little book contains "green thoughts" from writers who gardened across the centuries, thoughts that speak about the beauty and meaning of gardens. These words are combined with the author's personal prayers, based on the ancient Celtic words from the Carmina Gadelica. Whether you garden yourself or only enjoy looking at gardens, this collection of thoughts will remind you of the deep connection with the life force that sustains not only every green thing but also our own lives and the entire cosmos.

Here in my garden, I bend my knee
to the beauty I see beneath me,
to the beauty I see above me,
to the beauty I see all around me.
O Great Being, Spirit of Beauty,
bestow on me eyes to see beauty in leaf, beauty in flower,
beauty in love, beauty in power, beauty in stem, beauty in fruit,
beauty in soil, beauty in root.
Beauty on earth as it is in heaven,
here in my garden,
in shade and light, by day and night,
I bend my knee to beauty.
