A beautiful example of a nature diary, found at my public library.

I love this book. I went on a binge a few years ago and bought all sorts of "Country Diary" stuff on Ebay for my daughter's birthday ~ books, videos, stitchery kits, etc. I think I had more fun than she did! ;~P

Isn't that a lovely book? Mother of Divine Grace uses it for their homeschool high school program. She has also written one other book.

She was quite a lovely artist, and had a tragic death in her late 40's. I just read she was accidentally drowned doing what she loved best - collecting bits of nature near the river.

I came across your blog looking for a "recipe" for Castile soap for the dishwasher and then saw this post! Within minutes I'd found a copy of this beautiful book and it will be at my house next week. It looks wonderful.
