Lovely botanical watercolors

This is a watercolor journal/diary of a young woman who documented the flora and fauna around her for the entire year of 1906. Lovely little paintings and descriptions of her world. Unfortunately she drowned in 1920 in the Thames collecting the buds of chestnut trees. The dangers of collecting and documenting!
