365 prompts for noticing nature every day of the year.

Arranged in day-by-day format, this beautiful gift book is a celebration of the nature you can find in your city or town, such as urban foxes prowling in your garden, weeds sprouting from a crack in the pavement, butterflies on your balcony, and the joys of wandering along a canal path.

Learn how to put up a bug hotel on January 5, search for cherry blossom on April 4, and have a picnic underneath a willow’s branches on June 11. There are cloud formations to spot, avenues of trees to walk down, and elder berries to harvest.

Over the past few years, city dwellers have all learned to appreciate the nature on their doorsteps, as part of the lasting legacy of lockdown. This timely book is a celebration of the vast variety of wildlife around us, proving that you don’t need a trip to the countryside to enjoy the natural world.
