“The no-man’s land between winter and spring can be a frustrating time for humans. But for nature, it signifies new life.”
The Book Fairies have been celebrating Nature’s Wonders today! This National Trust book by Jane V. Adams will make readers see Spring in a magical way 🙂
About the book:
Britain’s natural year, from the first flower to the last leaf…
With a mix of evocative writing, beautiful photographs and facts that are too good to keep to yourself, this book explores 50 magical moments that define our seasons. It’s an inspiring guide to connecting with the nature around you and seeing how it changes through the year. There’s butterflies, blossom and bluebells. There’s foxgloves, flying ants and fungi. There’s snow, seedheads and shadows. You’ll discover how many miles an hour spring moves, how spiders can heal us and how woodpeckers help to protect sensitive technology.
The inspiration behind the book is partly the National Trust’s hugely successful ‘Blossom Watch’ campaign, launched in March 2021. Each year we are encouraged to notice and share when we first see a tree blossom, emulating the Japanese tradition of ‘Hanami’.
We love hearing from happy finders! Here are a couple from today!
