Review: A Season of Advent Herbal Symbolism, Projects, Garden Designs and Recipes by Don Haynie

Synopsis: This is a how-to book on the Herbs of Advent. Haynie takes the reader through each herb, it's meaning and lore, and how to grow it. Then, he gives instructions for creating Advent wreaths for the herbs, how to create an Advent herb garden and then traditional bake good recipes of Advent.

Review: This is a clever little book, odd, but in a good way. It's clearly self-published but that doesn't detract from the prose. Using clear instructions and with an obvious enthusiasm, Haynie gives the reader everything they need to create meaningful herb decorations of Advent, either for home or church. I'm not sure what the recipes in the back had to do with the herbs, but it's was nice to having a collection of the traditional recipes for Advent from across the globe. And it did make me want to bake a few!
