The Meticulous, Elegant Illustrations of the Nature Observed in England’s Countryside

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmAbh5ZkDEo If you happen to have grown up in the English countryside, you probably retain a certain sensitivity to and affinity for nature. This can express itself in any number of ways, most often by a compulsion to garden, no matter how urban the setting in which you now live. But Jo Brown has shown how to base a career on it: an artist and illustrator — and “birder wildlifer mushroomer,” according to her Twitter bio — she has long kept a “nature journa...

Country diary: bad weather leaves thatchers with the short straw

Buckland in the Moor, Devon: An unpromising wheat harvest results in scruffy raw material for thatchers this year, but looks aren’t everything It began life as a cow shed. The low building at the edge of St Peter’s Church in Buckland in the Moor looks unremarkable enough – rough granite walls, a simple roof of Devon wheat – yet it is believed to be the only surviving thatched vestry in the country.I am here to repair the roof. The church treasurer, Patrick Watson, shows me inside to inspect the ...

News on the “why” of her removal remains sparse. Yet it was an unexpected departure. Not so unexpected, the postpo...
