More than one hundred years ago, a sensitive woman naturalist, nature lover, and accomplished artist began to chronicle all that she encountered while walking and cycling around the countryside of her native England and neighboring Scotland. Besides noting the flora and fauna, she included poems and quaint folk sayings, saints' days, mottoes, and tidbits of history. Follow along with her month by month as she chronicles the summer thunderstorms and the first hard frost, notes Lady Day and Candlemas Day, watches birds nesting and raising their young, and quotes Shakespeare's praise of the fickleness of April and Browning's description of early November hours. Known in its facsimile reproduction as The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, which became a New York Times bestseller in 1978, Edith Holden's Nature Notes of 1906 will take the listener back in time one hundred years to when a young woman had the leisure time to deeply explore every nook of her countryside, sweetly celebrating the progress of the seasons on every page of her diary.
