With a mix of evocative writing, beautiful photographs and facts that are too good to keep to yourself, this book explores 50 magical moments that define our seasons. An inspiring guide to connecting with the nature around you and seeing how it changes through the year, Nature’s Wonders encourages readers to appreciate the butterflies, blossom and bluebells, foxgloves, flying ants and fungi. You’ll discover how many miles an hour spring moves, how spiders can heal us and how woodpeckers help to protect sensitive technology.

Inspired by the National Trust’s hugely successful ‘Blossom Watch’ campaign, each year we are encouraged to notice and share when we first see tree blossom, emulating the Japanese tradition of ‘Hanami’.

Jane V. Adams is fascinated by wildlife and wild places. She wrote an award-winning online wildlife diary from 2007 to 2015, and since then has been featured in BBC Countryfile Magazine and BBC Wildlife Magazine. In 2016, her work was included in An anthology for the changing seasons, edited by Melissa Harrison. In 2022 she was shortlisted for Bradt Guides New Travel Writer of the Year. A passionate amateur naturalist, she is particularly focused on bumblebees and solitary bees, badgers and old trees. Learn more at www.janevadams.com
