There's magic in gardening, whether it's in the calming effect of manual labor or the feel of plants and dirt under one's fingernails. Judith Handelsman goes beyond this to the healing and magical nature of plants and their "understanding" of one's words. In a series of vignettes, Handelsman describes how plants understood and healed her during a divorce and other changes in her life. She teaches how plants will "prepare" themselves for pruning and potting if one talks to them. Handelsman's voice is soothing and calming, encouraging the listener to try her techniques when working with plants. But only the listener can decide if plants heed one's words.
