[ETA: I shared this post with friends who took advantage of the low price, and it jumped up quickly. I was hoping it would stay low much longer! It’s still a lovely book, but not quite a steal.]
Friends, this book is gorgeous.
And at this moment it is only $3.45 on Amazon. Hardback cover, 240 pages, exquisite photography and dreamy nature-inspired ideas.
The book is divided by season, with activities for all four seasons. The two-page photography spreads throughout the book are graced with lovely quotes.
Connect with Nature is full of instructions for nature projects such as creating a terrarium, starting a veggie patch, making a swing, attracting birds, and making dyes from plants.
Recipes include herbal teas, heirloom tomato and peach salad, blueberry galette, buckwheat crepes with pears and figs, and poppyseed campfire bread with rhubarb compote.
Climb a tree, stack rocks, walk barefoot, go on a picnic, smell the rain.
Learn about moon phases and read the clouds (the pages on various cloud formations are fantastic).
Learn how to bloom branches indoors during the winter and tie knots.
Forage for edible weeds. Dig for clay and make pinch pots.
I wanted to purchase a stack of these books to have handy for gifts, but unfortunately the seller has a limit of 1 book per customer. So I am selfishly keeping this one for my own enjoyment.
