Do you think we saw and drew a Cephalanthus Occidentalis? I think so! This was at our second nature walk.
After that, we went for new nature journals we tweaked to our taste.
Of course we did not pay the linked prices, these type of books are very expensive online, but sometimes we are lucky to find them in used book stores or book sales.
The explorers book is great for maps, and short biographies of those explorers we do not study in more detail. A great coffee table book, and eye candy. (Though I have to say the text is well written too).
The Story of the Dress is very interesting, and it helps us see different countries and regions attire through the ages. Another great coffee table reference book.
And the last finding, that encyclopedia of the symbolism of plants and flowers in art, is fascinating. Almost every flower and fruit depicted in classic paintings, means something. Others knew, we, not so much anymore. And, guess what?, I believe this is the same book in English, by the same author.
