By Tamra L. Monroe on December 2, 2004
Format: Hardcover
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!

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.

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.

Since I love painting all things nature this was a wonderful book. To think of this lady born in 1871 lovingly doing the same things I do today is intriguing. She died before I was born but there is a kinsman-ship I feel towards her. Great book.

This is a wonderful collection that mimics the beautiful "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady". It feels like this is a compilation of all the extra things that did not make it into The Country Diary. I have both sitting out on my coffee table. I've been enjoying them as each corresponding day comes. This book is filled with lovely artistic renditions of what Edith Holden witnessed and is much more in tuned towards the naturey-bits that she came across. It's just really lovely and soothing to read and look through.
