I have been tagged by Lynda–thanks Lynda! I have been told to pick the book closest to me and turn to page 28. Write about what it says and “tag” two other of your favorite blogs and ask that they do the same. As I sit the book closest to me is one of my very favorites called The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden. Is anyone familiar with this beautiful book? Edith was a British writer and art teacher. She was born in 1871 anad died in 1920. She became famous following her publication of Nature Notes. She taught school in Solihull. While collecting flowers on the river bank, order she drowned in the Thames in 1920. How very sad. To read more about her, viagra here is a link. This lovely book takes you through all the months of the year with the lovliest water colored painting and sketches. I could look and read this book for hours. Page 28 brings me to the month of March, where there are poems by Wordswoth, Wm. Morris and Tennyson, they read:

It is the first mild day of March
Each minute sweeter than before
The redbreast sings from the tall larch
That stands beside our door.
WORDSWORTH.

Slayer of the winter, art thou here again?
O welcome, thou that bring’et the summer nigh!
the bitter wind makes not thy victory vain,
Nor will we mock thee for thy faint blue sky.
Welcome O March! Whose kindly days and dry
Make April ready for the throstle’s song.
Thou first redresser of the winter’s wrong!
WM. MORRIS.

“The roaring moon of daffodil and crocus.”
TENNYSON.

If you don’t have this book, do yourself a favor and get it. I have bought this for many friends, it’s just that kind of a book.
