The Country Diary of an Elizabethan Lady

In 1977, The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady was a publishing phenomenon.
It was a facsimile reproduction of the naturalist
Edith Holden's diary for the year 1906.
In it she recorded in words and paintings the flora and fauna of the British countryside through the changing seasons of the year.

Blogger Milly for those of you who don't already know her,
is a 21st century naturalist and artist, well worth a visit.
So I'll leave the painstaking and patient work of drawing from nature to her
and continue with my altogether more slapdash photographic record
of the berries and fruits I have seen over the last few days.
