5 Books for Nature Lovers

Trees in Winter

In the middle of a Cleveland winter, it can be hard for nature lovers (myself included) to get our fill of sunshine, fresh air, and contact with plants and animals.  And unfortunately, I don't expect this to change anytime soon.  Since there's not much we can do about the weather, let's make the most of it by settling down inside with a comfy chair, a hot cup of tea, a warm blanket and one of these books!
