Ten top books about the seasons

Axel Lindén lives with his family on a farm in Sweden. Counting Sheep: Reflections and Observations of a Swedish Shepherd is his first book.

One of the author's ten best books about the seasons, as shared at the Guardian:
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill by Mark Bittner

Bittner describes his fascinating relationship with a flock of wild parrots that he discovers in his bohemian neighbourhood in San Francisco. The book portrays the surprising and charming love story between man, animal and nature, especially the relationship between the wild and the tame. In one of the finest scenes, the wild parrots chatter in triumph having survived the cold winter nights and welcome the spring, reminding them of their Amazonian origins.
