Spring Nature Shelf - Beginnings

With the onset of spring, I was motivated this week to clear off our winter display and create the beginnings of our spring display. Initially it is always a little bit bare, we add to it as the season progresses and we come across new things of interest.

As you can see, Brambly Hedge 'Spring Story' is now on the shelf, and The Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady is open at 'April'. We also have a little bouquet of spring flowers collected from the garden and I made some pretty paper bunting to string across the front of the shelf.

If you are interested, I found the Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady on YouTube! Like the book it is ordered by month. It is interesting to see how Edith's walks are carefully recorded in her diary which we can read today. The only thing that is a bit disturbing - and I really wish they had left this bit out, although I know from reading her biography is is true - is how the families dabbling in spiritualism (not the good kind) is brought through in each episode. It's a bit ..... well... hmmmm, I'll let you decide. I personally don't like it, but the rest of the content is good.


As you can see I have only inserted 'January' into my post, but if you go up onto YouTube you will see all 12 months.
