I enjoyed so much about this book. To start with it is beautifully presented. I love the cover artwork and the title. But of course that is not enough reason to love the book.

Hay creates lovely word pictures describing the seasons, the garden and its creatures. She also has reflections on the seasons of life, and on God’s blessings. Although written from a Christian worldview, only a few poems refer
