Remember the book and movie "Being There?"
The main character is mistaken for a genius because he speaks about life as a garden… but that's because gardening is all he knows.

But she, too, finds many parallels between life and gardening.
And she shares the comparisons with us in her book Paradise In Plain Sight: Lessons From A Zen Garden.
