The Year Of Talking To Plants is a fascinating read for lovers of gardening and those open to the belief that plants have spiritual healing qualities. When I agreed to review this book, I thought I might learn a thing or two to help me in my garden; however, I wasn’t prepared for the wonderful possibility that I might be able to communicate with my plants.
This book filled me with hope for the future, making me want to grow more of my own food and to increase my efforts to clean up the planet and lead a healthier lifestyle. I have already put into practice some of the advice and have made changes to improve the conditions of some of my plants: my melons were cold and some Verbena were lonely and chilly as well. How do I know? I asked them!
Fairies at the bottom of the garden? Not just the bottom but in every bush and tree. How does the author know this? She has spoken to them as she does all of her plants. This may be a step too far for some people, but it harks back to knowledge that our ancestors had thousands of years ago. I do believe in coincidences and this book arrived shortly after I had read another book about a people who pre-dated the Celts; there was much in both books about mother nature, the sun, moon and the seasons, and how humans would greatly benefit from getting back in sync with nature. This is a book that I will re-read and I am already interested in reading more from this author.
