From the emergence of snowdrops in January to tree skeletons at the end of the year, Nature's Calendar adopts the Japanese approach to dividing the year into 72 micro-seasons.
Inspired by a traditional Japanese calendar which divides the year into segments of four to five days, this book guides you through a year of 72 seasons as they manifest in the British Isles.
From 'Snowdrops emerge' in the first days of January to 'Tree skeletons and sky' at the close of the year, each fleeting season is epitomized by some natural phenomenon, be it a plant coming into bud, a burst of birdsong, or a cobweb spangled by dew. Drawing on folklore and tradition, herbal medicine and natural history, this is a book to give, to treasure, to dip into, and to inspire your own regular acts of noticing nature as it flourishes and fades and rises again, through the seasons.

'A gorgeous guide to the year, one that will deepen readers' relationships with the season.' - Melissa Harrison
'The magic of Nature's Calendar lies in the simplicity of its premise: break the year into smaller parts, and see what happens to our noticing. What follows is a striking collection of essays by writers and keen observers of the natural world; an invitation to get involved; and a celebration of what is fleeting.' - Helen Jukes
