The Forward of this book tells about the three hundred tree peonies that were sent from the Japanese town of Yatsuka-Cho in Shimane Prefecture to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden "to bring peace of mind to people in the United States" after the events of September 11, 2001.
The book is not very long, but be prepared for unlimited beauty, they will fill you with awe! With a picture of a beautiful reddish and white peony there is this quote at the bottom that says it all, The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth, One is nearer God's heart in a garden. Than anywhere else on earth. ~ Dorothy Frances Gurney, "Garden Thoughts"
This is a book that will make you feel good, and a cheer up book to give to friends.
I received this book from the Author Deborah Chaney and was not required to give a positive review.
Was a very lovely poetry book to read it was filled with beautiful pictures, and quotes that made me melt, how ever I do fell that $6.99 is over priced for this book, even doe it is filled with vibrant pictures and quotes of poetry.
