The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady| Edith Holden. Illustration: Hares in Snow, January 1905.
I was given a belated birthday present of The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady yesterday by the wonderful @the-unicorn-and-music-maker <3 I really recommend these two books for Mori Girls who love nature, and like to know what’s going on in their gardens throughout the year :)
My mom got me this book (The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady) at a rummage sale recently. It’s filled with color copies of this journal this lady made while she lived out in the country for a year. Its absolutely lovely and I can’t wait to have a coffee table to set it on.
