Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The Magical Garden is a curious little book of magic, charms, spells, and bits of traditional and historical lore from and for magical gardens and the curious gardeners who tend to them. What gardener would not want to know the flower they were born under, the traditional magical meanings of bells and chimes, or the healing power of geraniums? Many of these nuggets of wisdom and magic have been handed down from Sophia's grandparents, who extensively used herbs and such in their psychic work. Avid gardener and ancient historian Denny Sargent collected much of the information included here from a wide variety of traditional sources. Roman, Celt, Norse, and Japanese gardeners all believed in garden magic, and some of their most fascinating traditions, spells, and charms are contained in this wonderful little book. In addition to the garden, magical plants, birds, insects, the yard, and the weather are also addressed. Other interesting lore includes: Garden sprites, fairies, and elves; Ancient and magical ways for empowering the garden by planting certain plants in special places; Traditions for celebrating festivals in the garden, ways of using garden plants for protection, and techniques for invoking positive energy with trees.
