June Cotner's books comprise a balance of about 20 percent classic and famous writers and 80 percent lesser-known, award-winning writers, uncovering many selections not found anywhere else.

It provides witness to the gifts of the earth and the joy of carefully thought-out, cultivated abundance. Writings drawn from several centuries grace the pages as the smell of flowers and the sound of birds fill the reader's mind. The cover will draw customers in and, once inside, they will find many hours of upliftingcompanionship."-Anna Jedrziewski,Retailing Insight"A great book of poems, prose and prayers celebrating the love of gardening."-The Baby Spot"This is a beautiful book to enjoy leisurely. It is not something you sit down and read through, but you should read through it slowly, contemplating as you go. While it is too small to be considered a 'coffee table' book, that is actually a good way to display it for your visitors to enjoy. The cover is beautiful and a great draw to open the book. The writings inside are from various authors or literary greats, some better known that others, but thought provoking and intriguing. You will wax nostalgic as you meander through this delightful little book."-Lifelong Learning"An ode to the places where land is sown and memories reaped."-Edge"Garden Blessings offers many different ways to contemplate and appreciate gardens and gardening. Whether you prefer to concentrate on roses or radishes in your garden, this little book aims to help you enjoy the nourishment for both body and soul."-The Kitsap Sun"Garden Blessings is a one-of-a-kind treasury of uplifting prayers, prose and poems that share a common appreciation for the love of gardening and the many blessings that gardens bring to our lives."-LA Splash"This is a collection of little poems and thoughts from different authors that cover all aspects of the garden - from the different seasons to flowers to vegetables and just about everything in between. If you're looking for some inspirational thoughts as you sit in your garden drinking your tea, or perhaps just looking for a gift for a gardener in your life, you've come to the right place."-Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife "
