Julia has made a book brimming with things that tickled her own curiosity and filled her with love and admiration for the wonders of nature. The book inspires you to walk outside and stand still and just look.

We often rush around in life but nature is a great master to help us stop and reflect. Whether it is the clouds drifting over the skyscrapers, the little slug that came out when it started to rain, or the fluttering dragonfly.  The act of watching is often underestimated.

This book is the follow-up to the equally charming Farm Anatomy.
