Elizabeth Holden's The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady seems to have more popularity than The Nature Notes, but I have found it to be just as awesome and inspiring as The Country Diary. In fact, if it is possible, I like this one more so than The Country Diary, although its setup is very much the same. The book is broken down by months from January through December. Each month begins with a brief history of the month, related folk lore, and poetry. The art work is wonderful and the entries draw you into the adventures of Ms. Holden. Even though the journal was kept almost 100 years ago, you feel that you are right there beside Ms. Holden, and for me, she has become a friend. She has been a great motivation for me to illustrate my own journals. I would highly recommend this book as well as The Country Diary if you love nature walks and journaling.

Edith Holden was an excellent observer of nature and an outstanding artist of what she saw. The inclusion of some of my favorite poems by well known authors makes this book an absolute delight!

This book is a delight to browse through, to dream of
country gardens created to satisfy the senses and
refresh the soul. Summons forth a deep breath of
lavender and woodland. Everyone should enjoy.

Edith's book is unique. Is there anyone today who has the time and commitment to observe the natural world around us, record it in drawings and paintings, and then process the impact of the experience with poetry and reflections? The illustrations of nature are pretty well executed and the poetry is an acceptable montage from commonly studied poets, but what makes this book unique is the personal expression of the author. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Perhaps there were other romantic authors of the Edwardian or other earlier eras who studied and reflected on the progression of the seasons around them, but little is in print. I was moved by Edith's care in execution which was solely done for her own benefit, but expressed conscientiously with feeling.

Though not as "finished" as the original Diary, it is still a charming, beautifully illustrated book, capturing a way of life that took time to savor the moment.

Very beautiful book, make your own notes in it too. Edith holden did these illustratons in 1093 and '04. They are timeless.
