Descriere

A fresh perspective, an outdoor exploration, a new adventure about to begin—How to Be a Wildflower is the book to celebrate these and other wide-open occasions. Encouraging self-discovery through encounters with nature, beloved artist Katie Daisy brings her beautiful paintings and lettering to this collection of things to do and make, quotes, meditations, natural history, and more. A recipe for strawberry rhubarb pie, a prompt to hike by the light of the moon, a place to press flowers: every page inside the charming textured two-piece case invites readers to wander, gather, savor, and ponder the natural world around them. For every wild and free spirit—and those who aspire to be—this is a field guide to living life to the fullest.

How to Be a Wildflower - Katie Daisy

I meander down the path between cornfield and fence, my daily ritual. The sun lights up the wild daisies growing along fence posts while red-winged blackbirds sing hymns to the meadow. This is Lindenwood, Illinois, and I am a wildflower.

I’m a single stem of wheat, swaying in the sun.

A hummingbird drinking from a columbine plant.

A fluttering tadpole, stretching her new legs in the pond.

Lindenwood is a town of 505 people nestled on the banks of the Kilbuck Creek. It was my home ten years ago, and remains home to me always. When you’re a child in a Lindenwood summer, time does not exist. The days are long, full of wonder, and the setting sun is not a marker of a day’s work done but an invitation to explore the night. The yard becomes dappled with fireflies, the sky spread with the brightest of constellations, and the distant coyote howl becomes a lullaby to it

  • (5/5)
    My immediate thoughts after reading this book were: Does this woman sell posters? If so, I want 20! In our technology based world, a book like this is much needed to remind us on nature.

    Katie Daisy paints her way throughout many aspects of nature and nearly each and every page shows it beautifully. Daisy strikes me as a woman who has become one with nature or considers it a friend.

    I couldn't recommend this as an ebook; it's only half the experience. Go buy the actual book, and try everything in it. 5/5
