"Best-selling author June Cotner is lifting up her readers with an offering of prayer and poetry based on gardening." —Fox News

"Beautifully designed, and lovingly compiled over a decade, this book will be a delight for those who toil in the garden or those who just enjoy the beauty of others’ labors. It provides witness to the gifts of the earth and the joy of carefully thought-out, cultivated abundance. Writings drawn from several centuries grace the pages as the smell of flowers and the sound of birds fill the reader’s mind. The cover will draw customers in and, once inside, they will find many hours of uplifting companionship." —Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

Garden Blessings is an eloquent tribute to the wonders of the garden, a place where our souls are nourished and memories grown. June Cotner’s books comprise a balance of about 20 percent classic and famous writers and 80 percent lesser-known, award-winning writers, uncovering many selections not found anywhere else. Ranging from childhood memories of planting and harvesting to celebrations of the changing seasons to contemplation on the joyful art of gardening, Garden Blessings is a moving collection of poems, prayers, and reflections that reminds us of what really matters — making and sharing memories.

Our gardens grow us, and this collection of readings takes us down a path of pleasure. The overriding intention of Garden Blessings is to provide a heartwarming, spiritually focused collection of uplifting prayers, prose, and poems that share a common joy and appreciation for the love of gardening and the many blessings that gardens bring to our lives. June Cotner, a best-selling inspirational author, has gathered a bounty of garden blessings here, offering gems of wisdom that remind the reader and gardener in all of us just how much we learn from our gardens.

June Cotner is the author/editor of 26 books, including Dog Blessings. Collectively, her books have sold more than 850,000 copies and have earned praise in many national publications including USA Today, Better Homes & Gardens, Woman’s Day, and Family Circle. She lives in Poulsbo, WA.
