A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide To 2019 by Lia Leendertz after I saw a respected Instagram user recommendation. I am so pleased that I did too, as it is absolutely amazing!
The return of this number 1 bestseller aims to reconnect it’s readers with the Great British seasons. Each month the author gives an in-depth guide to the world around you, making this almanac the perfect essential companion to any gardener or for those who adore spending lots of time outdoors. I am amazed at just how much the author Lia Leendertz manages to fit into this compact little book! The Almanac features key dates, moon phases, meteor showers, stories of folklore, sun sets and rises, sea temperatures and tides, recipes, festivals, and songs… to name a few of it’s features! It’s packed with so much information, yet remains compact enough to fit into any handbag or allotment backpack!
It really makes the perfect companion to the seasons, and I’m sure it shall remain in it’s new home on my bedside table all year round, ready to be read throughout the next 12 months. The Almanac looks beautiful too. Artist Celia Hart has adorned this book with stunning illustrations that really make this book look amazing.
I loved this little book so much that I bought my dad and my brother-in-law a copy each for Christmas. My dad is a groundskeeper and my brother-in-law is a caretaker, so they both spend a lot of time outdoors and they have a huge love and respect for nature.
