A spring-time book to germinate a deep appreciation for nature. While a little girl plants seeds in her garden in neat straight rows, the wind whirls seeds of flowers and trees every which way. The little girl weeds and waters her garden, the wind just lets its garden grow. And with plenty of sun and rain, both gardens flourish. From seedling to flower, this picture book's simple verse and vibrant illustrations describe the beauty of both a cultivated garden and one created by nature. An author's note at the of the book gives tips on planting a garden.
