Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady

0705 Country diary

I remember when this first came out, loved it then for its gentle, observant watercolours. On doing some googling, I find it's thirty years since its first publication, and 101 since Edith Holden recorded 1906. It's a blog of its time. I came across this in an op shop and couldn't leave it there, although I have my original copy and a copy of the subsequent biography.

I wonder, a century from now, which blogs will have survived as records of what our eyes see in the world around us.
