Weird Book of the Week - Talks with Trees; A Plant Psychic's Interviews with Vegetables, Flowers and Trees by Leslie Cabarga

ISBN 0965762807 - Talks With Trees - Leslie Cabarga

If you have a wallowing willow or dallying dahlia, you may want to give Leslie Cabarga a call. Cabarga you see, communicates with trees and plants.

After channeling spirits for over 15 years, he wondered if he might also successfully contact the spirit guides of plants and trees. Cabarga decided to test the possiblity at the bank one day and asked a potted plant sitting on the counter how it was. He heard the plant's reply, "Oh, not very well. We are trying our best to grow lushly and beautifully for everyone to appreciate but it is hard under the circumstances."

Talks with Trees is a collection of over 30 of Cabarga's interviews with a variety of plants and trees including ancient redwoods, a Japanese maple, a garlic bulb, an onion, an apple tree, two heads of lettuce, and a purple potato.
