Abstract:

"The rituals of gardening give a rhythm ... to everyday life that is apart from the routines of writing and the flows of relationships. Tending my garden became the same as taking care of myself." In this modern pastoral, Lisle tells us how she heaved compost, dug post holes, planted, and replanted--and how she also found herself digging into her feelings about love and loss, work and play, roots and rootlessness, solitude and sociability. Twenty years later, in these intimate essays, she explores the fascinating connections among one's interior landscape, village life, and the natural world.--From publisher description.
