Book review: A Garden of Love

This little girl came to the church for a wedding

A delightful spiritual glimpse into the beautiful world of flora.

Thomas B. Clarke is a visionary gardener who has successfully completed his dream of creating a beautiful prayer ''Garden of Love''...Gethsemane Prayer Garden in Syracuse, New York.
In this peaceful and love-steeped garden, Christians can gather to pour out their hearts to the Creator, and be rested by the comfort of thought-filled flower and other growth plantings.
Through the book ''A Garden of Love'', the author manages to share a portion of the love and thoughtfulness that is daily invested in this haven of beauty!

As an avid gardener of both vegetables and flowers, I appreciated the large colorful pictures and the imaginative Scriptural comparisons accompanying each plant.
I found the thoughts on each plant very interesting and even inspiring as I annually strive to grow special as well as attractive flowers in my own little world of gardening!

With over fifteen flowers and plants featured alphabetically in this large paperback book, you will not be disappointed. This book would make a pleasant gift for a gardening friend.
