"A Basket of Flowers" centers on James, a godly gardener, and his young daughter, Mary. Their happy and simple life is disrupted when Mary is accused and convicted of theft. At her trial, Mary tells the truth, maintaining her innocence in spite of great pressure. Convicted as thief and accomplice, Mary and her father begin their sentence for the crime. Continuing his lessons from nature about the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, James encourages Mary through this trial and prepares her for the next, greater blow.

He also authored the Christian children's classic, "A Basket of Flowers." The writings of Christoph von Schmid have been translated into 24 languages. His stories usually center around a disturbance to the happiness of good people which God's righteousness finally fixes, the goal of the writer being to awaken a practical piety in his youthful readers. Christoph von Schmid also wrote poems which are scattered here and there in his work. His autobiography, Erinnerungen aus meinem Leben, was published in 1853-1857.
