Morning Glory: A Story of Family & Culture in the Garden (unpublished)

Morning Glory: A Story of Family & Culture in the Garden (unpublished)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 4,208|Likes:
Published by Benjamin Vogt
When a son reflects on a childhood of gardening with his mother, he finds clues to a family lineage built around silences, distance, and forgetfulness. Eventually, his mother begins to openly reveal a past that confronts the author’s own dark nature. In the history of gardens there are great tragedies and triumphs, and in the garden we continue to discover our truest selves.

I love every word in you story. I relate not only as myself and my son. Also thru my parents and grandparents. I just hope and pray thru me my son will enjoy nature, plants, and his on personal soul like you have. Keep writting and i'll keep reading. Thanks Paulette
