'What a glorious day: warm, bright sunshine, and still. At a time when the transition from October to November should be pushing at winter with a short stick, the light and temperature are spring-like. Wasps feed on ivy flowers. Red admiral butterflies, still dapper in black, scarlet and white, have a confident swagger as they flick through sunny patches. I ceremoniously knocked the last apple down from the tree with a broom, but the season refuses to end for some plants...'

Paul Evans is one of the Guardian's most popular country diarists, alongside Richard Mabey and Mark Cocker. This collection has been specifically chosen by the author to represent the huge body of work he has produced for the Guardian over the last ten years.

Whether he is writing about the sinuous twisting of the river at his beloved Wenlock Edge, or the weird dissonance caused by the clocks going back in the autumn, Paul Evan's writing is part poetry, part hymn, but always nature writing at its very best.
