Publisher Comments:

Vibrant, deeply hued illustrations and graceful prose relay the spiritual symbolism behind many common flowers and plants
-- Includes information on designing and growing a "garden of contemplation"

Most people associate the lily with Easter, but its meaning goes far deeper in our spiritual history. The lily is said to have sprung from the earth in the spot where a tear fell from Eve's eye as she left the Garden of Eden. With language that flows like the curves of delicate flowers, Roni Jay describes the sometimes mythical, often magical meanings of many well-known flowers and plants.

Graceful illustrations accompany the text, and page after page is surrounded by colorful, floral borders. With its beautiful design and hardcover package, this book will appeal to gardeners as well as readers interested in mysticism, spirituality, and mythology. Flowers whose meanings are explored include:
-- The lotus, a major mystical symbol in ancient Buddhist, Hindu, and Egyptian traditions. Ancient Egyptians believed the scent of the lotus blossom renewed the life force.
-- The peony, which represents the Chinese principle of yang — masculinity at its best — as well as glory, good fortune, and happiness.
-- The passion flower — its different parts correspond symbolically to the stages of Christ's passion.
-- The chrysanthemum, which signifies the approach of old age and a time for relaxation to enjoy the fruits of labor.

Jay's book also includes a guide on how to design and grow a garden using the flowers and plants described to create a mystical and spiritual paradise in any yard.
