“Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature” by Linda Lear

I love it when an Amazon.com box is sitting outside of my door! (No Mon@rch, it wasn’t my Sibleys – yet). I pre-ordered a copy of Linda Lear’s latest biography of Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature.

Susan Wittig Albert told me this is an excellent book, which I know it will be because I read Linda Lear’s Rachel Carson: Witness For Nature book last March. If Rachel Carson had written her autobiography, it couldn’t have been more detailed than Linda Lear’s biography of her.

I have been waiting for this book to come out in print forever. Now to clear my calendar so I can sit around reading until I’m done with this tome! Yeah, right!

Oh and Susan Gets Native, you probably already know this – Beatrix Potter *loved* fungus, too!

    I have recently learned that people who love fungus are pretty cool! On Friday I photographed what might be fungus…I’ll show and tell another day.

    Mary – they are! I love anybody who knows about anything out in the woods, don’t you?
    Well now you’ve gone and teased me. Wanna see the fungus now! 🙂 I guess I can wait.
