Excerpt from Nature Study Lessons Seasonally Arranged
Several considerations have determined the choice of matter in the following chapters. In the first place the objects described, whether whole plants or parts, are nearly all of good size, of clearly defined and typical structure, and, what is also of importance, easily obtainable.
In the second place the material has a distinct relation to the seasons. The chapters follow the annual cycle of the months and, as each is independent of the others, a start may be made at any point and the circle completed from it onwards. The first chapter is of a general nature and may be regarded as introductory to, or as summarising, the rest of the book. It may be pointed out that the seasonal arrangement is not merely a matter of convenience. The cabbage is not merely set down for study in winter because it can be got then, or because little else is available, but chiefly because it is an expression in plant form of the cessation of active growth imposed by that season. In the same way the seedling bean suggests the return of vigorous life associated with spring: The fulness and colour of summer is seen in leafy plants (such as wallflower) with their showy flowers, while not less distinctly do the ripening fruits and showers of seed point to autumn as a time of results.
