The Joy of Mowing the Lawn

The Joy of Mowing the Lawn


Getting outside, our hands in the earth, watching plants tentatively bud then burst into bloom: gardening is a magical pastime with all the ingredients for radically enhancing our wellbeing. Yet it’s not always easy for us to tap into this – when it is rainy and grey, or we are faced with a mundane task such as mowing the lawn, we can lose sight of the joy of gardening, simply going through the motions to get the job done. This book shows you how to find joy in every moment, and every detail, of gardening, and how to reap the wellbeing benefits this hobby offers.
