SIAN TUCKER    Book Number: 88686    Product format: Hardback

Day dreaming, watching thunder and lightning, stargazing and seeing a shooting star, feeding and admiring the beauty of birds, your home can be full of nature if you bring home daisies, leaves, stones or shells to collect, organise and display, pressing flowers and leaves is described, floating flowers, a seashell wind chime, a seasonal wreath, printing with the sun, growing, composting, making a spring wild leaf pesto from nettles and wild garlic, sugaring flowers, herbal teas, a healing balm, Tomato Ketchup, Hedgerow Ramble Bramble Jelly are some of the craft ideas. Following the success of our upcycling gardening books and creating furniture from pallets, we snatched up this 2019 beautifully designed hardback which makes us look very closely at nature and love it even more and best of all, stay close to it because it will never fail you. Calming to the soul and good for us all, spending time outdoors offers us precious breathing space away from the stresses and strains of modern life. From walking in the dark with only the light of the moon and the stars to guide you, to wild swimming, forest bathing, sleeping under canvas, sitting in the garden, going for a walk in the park, listening to the birds, cycling along a river, going to the sea, walking through a sea of swaying meadow grasses, listening to the bees buzzing, watching a buzzard swooping, seeing the sun rise or set, watching the clouds float by, all these things will lighten your mood and make you feel happier and more connected to the world around you. Not so many years ago most of us lived off the land, walked everywhere and maybe rode a horse, closely in contact with nature and the changing seasons. We know from Hippocrates that 'nature itself is the best physician.' Colour has a great impact on our mood to energise or calm us, heal or irritate. It can affect our sleep patterns, digestion and appetite. We can look and take delight in how colour plays on flora and fauna and be inspired by the incredible natural palette. We have barely started because there is tree climbing and explanations of each tree, myths and legends and oh, so much more. 192 big beautiful pages, full page colour illustrations.
