Our cottage naturalist library

20 Sep

I have bought a bunch of books to update our library of natural sciences and field guides for the cottage.  We have quite a selection already, but many are quite old and not as rich in photos and color plates as the newer ones. 

P1050538I hope that some of you cottage naturalists will use them.  Take an afternoon and challenge yourself to identify 5 trees that you don’t know the name of, or pick a bouquet of flowers and pull out the wildflower book to see what you’ve got.  It can be addictive.  As you know, I’m addicted to mushrooms right now – but I don’t have a good mushroom book so I perused our naturalist library in the shelves above the couch and came up with not one but 5 different books to satisfy my quest for identification!P1050539

Once you get into a bit of plant or animal or rock or insect identification you’ll be hooked!
