Identifying Swiss wild flowers - 30 Days Wild

We are now one week in to our 30 Days Wild challenge. It’s been a busy time, not least because those seven days have spanned being on and returning from holiday and getting back to normal routines again, all of which has left relatively little time for extra things.

Still, as …

So I’ve failed completely on the daily blogging side of the #30DaysWild challenge but fortunately not been broken yet on the challenge itself. The last five days have been busy ones but fortunately not without their wild moments. Inspired by all the nettle action going on on BBC Springwatch, I decided to take Roo …

Roo and Beth were at nursery all day yesterday. That meant a work day for me and little time to get out exploring. Fortunately, nature came to me. All day long I was entertained from my study desk by the great tit chicks on the bird table. One in particular was very cheeky. It has …

making maps, #30dayswild

Yesterday Roo announced she wanted to make a map. She’s been doing this a lot lately – drawing random squiggles on a piece of paper and then heading off on some imaginary journey around the house following her maps with a tour group of teddies in tow. Perhaps she had been making maps at nursery …

Foraging, #30dayswild

It’s Day 4 of the #30DaysWild challenge and it seems someone finally told June that it is supposed to be a summer month. The sun has been out and gloriously warm – a perfect day to go searching for elderflower. The sunshine helps to warm the flowers and bring out their scent, with the …

hedgehogs, #30dayswild

Roo used to love ‘In the Night Garden’ on TV when she was a bit younger. It used to give me a breather during the most tiring times whilst pregnant with her sister. These days we barely turn the TV on – I think the last time was sometime last week for ten minutes whilst …

Happy Day 2 of the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge. The weather has got in on the act today by being particularly wild itself and whipping up the trees into a frenzy. Luckily, by the time we were ready to head on out things had calmed down a bit. The sun even poked its …
