Easter Greetings!

We're back on Monday 11th April. Enjoy!

This lovely painting is taken from 'The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady' by Edith Holden. It is a naturalist's diary for the year 1906. The diary lay undiscovered for 70 years, and was first published in 1977. The book is written by hand and the beautiful paintings of birds, butterflies, bees and flowers reflect Edith's love of nature.
