Rebecca Winn became a landscape designer by instinct.

She knew that something about the flowers, the soil, the cycle and the discovery fed her soul.

When her life fell apart, it was her garden that taught her how to heal.

In her new book, “One Hundred Daffodils,” she shares those lessons with us.

It’s beautifully written and deeply meaningful — especially as we collectively process the weight of a global pandemic. Join Kerri Miller on Friday for a break from the news and some time in Rebecca’s garden.
