Journal Entry 1 by Ellers from Homestead, Florida USA on Thursday, April 8, 2004
On January 1, 1906, Edith Holden made the first entry in a diary which was to record the English countryside through the changing seasons. Her words, all carefully written by hand, include her favorite poems, personal thoughts, and observations of the wildlife surrounding her home in the village of Olton, Warwickshire. The exceptionally beautiful paintings on every page of birds, butterflies, bees, and flowers reflect her deep love of nature; they have been executed with a naturalist's eye for detail and the sensitivity of an artist.

Edith Holden's diary of that year became a very special book for her, and she allowed no one to see it. For seventy years, this enchanting book had lain undiscovered until it was found recently on the shelves of an English country house. Now being published for the first time, this full-color facsimile edition recaptures all the freshness, charm, and beauty of the original.
