About this book

The author's knowledge of nature in Britain is deep and exact, based upon years of observation and distinguished by an intuitive understanding of what she sees. In this latest collection of her work she shares her discoveries and enthusiasms with us, and as the seasons pass we see our countryside, green and lovely, full of life and interest, through the eyes of an expert who loves what she sees, and who is rich in memories of other years.
