The Garden: Perennial Reflections on Beginnings and Ends

5.0 out of 5 stars

Reviewed in the United States on August 17, 2021 on Amazon

"Charles Frode himself gifted me with a copy of his book, because I am a gardener. But this book is about the spirit of gardening, and how it applies to our daily lives. It is not a how-to book about growing a garden. It is a philosophical treatise that takes the reader into the mind of a meditative thinker, a man of great depth of experience. I highly recommend it to those who walk the path of enlightenment, and stop along the way to smell the roses."
