In this bleak December, I'm hearted by the fact that we are approaching the Winter solstice tomorrow. Lia Leendertz’s The Almanac - A Seasonal Guide to 2023 is an inspiring tool for reconnecting with nature’s cycles in practical ways that propagate soulful results.

For younger bookworms – and nostalgic older ones too – there’s the Slightly Foxed Cubs series, in which we’ve reissued a number of classic nature and historical novels. And, threaded through the book, are in-depth insights to the cycle of a garden pond throughout the year.But I've seen enough to know I'll be revisiting it throughout the year, because that is the whole point of the book - it's an almanac. Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's daily session limit. A total compendium for 2023 providing information about the moon cycle, the sea temperature, zodiac information and some seasonal recipes fitting with the holidays next year. Many of us lead such busy lives that the seasons can pass us by; we barely notice the changes around us and certainly not those that take place in the night sky and along our coasts.

There are stories, songs, recipes, connections to the natural world and a sense that there are patterns to the year that have been going on for millennia. Carrying on the author then takes a look at the sky, the moon phases, sunrise/set, tide times and then onto Lunar planting.I’ve gotten more accustomed to wintering in recent years, thanks in part to the lockdowns and this wonderful book by Katherine May. I love books like this and while a diary often gives you basic information, an Almanac goes into a lot more detail. Having adopted our first dog over 4 years ago, I found myself starting to appreciate how our local area changes over the year in terms of the natural world on our daily dog walks.

For a small hardback book this book contains a wealth of information, fascinating facts and interesting, useful information. Spreads are indicated by surrounding icons representing items on the same (double page) spread in a grey box.Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). Including the moon, gardens ( what to look out for and the wildlife) recipes, different starsigns and also with each month it tells you what dates certain things are happening. I have picked out some favourites, such as the Folk Song for Aries’ Ram “The Derby Ram” which is especially interesting given where I live. Her reinvention of the traditional rural almanac has become an annual must-have for readers eager to connect with the seasons, appreciate the outdoors and discover ways to mark and celebrate each month. The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2023 gives you the tools and inspiration you need to celebrate, mark and appreciate each month of the year in your own particular way.
