Wait writes: "This book was started in 1997, and developed sporadically over four years. I collected a large ABC of garden symbolism while making the Cosmic garden, and included all the entries in this book. They are written in pencil, and can be read best in raking light. The imagery continues to be inspired by Italian gardens. Pathways, water, columns, trees and goddesses are important figures in this book."
