Nature Journal of Beatrix Potter

Rose by Beatrix Potter

At the age of 8, Beatrix Potter began filling up home made sketchbooks with beautiful drawings of animals and plants. I hope these pictures of nature will inspire you to record some of God's creation in your own unique way. I invite you to start a Nature Journal

Brew a pot of tea and let this wholesome hobby begin.

“Thank goodness I was never sent to school;

it would have rubbed off some of the originality.” 

~ Beatrix Potter

Beatrix at 15

"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall teach thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee; Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind."
