Reproduction du journal de campagne d Edith Holden superbement illustr d aquarelles d oiseaux et de plantes glan es dans les jardins et les bois I found out about this book while watching one of our favorite youtube channels Sew the Land I thought it would be perfect to go along with our nature studies at home for my sons whom I homeschool.
Edith Holden would walk, bike, and travel about in search for beautiful nature She d write down entries each month of the year of 1906 In these entries she talks about flowers, plants, animals, weather, and includes poems and drawings paintings of the things she saw It was so interesting and we learned a lot.
The only tough part about this is that there are sometimes large words I have never heard of in my life and her hand writing at times was not easy for me to read for the most part she had really beautiful hand writing though.
Ì The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady ↠´ This book is absolutely delightful The illustrations are beautiful Edith Holden s notes transport you in time, leaving you with the feeling of being in the meadow with her, almost to the point of the sunlight on your face and the earth beneath your feet The poetry is beautiful.
The seller was wonderful, even including a little gift clearly chosen based on my purchase.
I originally bought this book to cut up and use in my journals I just CANNOT do that I LOVE the illustrations In fact, I ordered another copy to take with me on our vacation for inspiration Had my copy of this book for many years was very touched by the beauty of the illustrations and the keen observations There is art and poetry everywhere This is a woman who treasured every day and saw the wonder that is freely given to everyone True riches for those who have the eyes and heart to receive them I love this book and have bought a copy to share with a very special friend who will love it too There is so much in the world that is disheartening Seeing Edith Holden s painting and her choice of verses and comments confirms that there is a grand plan and this beauty does not occur by accident A visual, but not overt reminder that His eye is on the sparrow etc It is enriching and comforting and so beautiful Most people want to or try to keep a diary at some point She has really done it wonderfully Thank youfor making it possible to share this love
