A lazy Sunday lie in with the hound and a fantastic read, Rob Cowen’s Common Ground. I can’t believe I let this wonderful book languish on my shelves for nearly two years before finally picking it up. A lyrical, beautiful read, from the Penguin website:

Immersive, evocative and powerful, Common Ground is a unique evocation of how, over the course of one year, Rob Cowen discovered a common – though extraordinary – square mile of wood, meadow, hedge and river on the edge of his northern town.

A bit of a lazy Sunday, although most Sundays tend to be a bit lazy. I am loving this beautifully written memoir of losing yourself to nature, my favourite kind of book really.
