Beach is this week’s #writephoto prompt, with a great picture from KL Caley. Check other stories, articles and poems at New 2Writing.com. It’s also my thought for #30DaysWild today. One of the Random Acts of Wildness I did a couple
Gilbert White, the 18th century naturalist, lived in Selborne, about 20 miles away from me in Hampshire. His house and garden was my first 30DaysWild excursion this year. I set off in the fourth day of wall-to-wall sunshine (as forecast),
Another June! They seem to come round so quickly. I’ve been taking part in the UK Wildlife Trusts’ awareness raiser #30DaysWild for some time now. This is what’s planned for 2021. Another June of Wild Writing The plan is to
Years events is a term I cobbled together for my penultimate post in this year’s A to Z Challenge. I don’t often do the Road Trip, but since I’ve spent so much of this month just writing, and only commenting
It’s the final week, in fact the final day of the 2020 30 Days Wild challenge. For me it’s been pretty much a washout. To review the final week first… Monday: I did the round up of the previous week.
I chose Meadowland to read during #30DaysWild because it seemed the right thing to do. It was on my list for may reasons, not only for its wildlife story, but for research purposes. You may remember that five (already?) years
Third week of 30 Days Wild. It always seems to be the difficult one. Given the change in the weather, and the impact of decorating on every other aspect of life in the house which is in semi-lockdown, I think
A Wild Weekend was the suggestion from the Wildlife Trusts. Whatever you do, make it wild. Plenty of ideas for sleeping out, watching the solstice dawn at Stonehenge (via Facebook). Virtual quizzes. Wild cooking… I didn’t check that out in
Three new butterflies in my garden this week, before the weather turned cool and wet. Very wet. My waterbutts which drained the summerhouse roof are nearly full, and it’s not that big a roof! Identifying Butterflies I find it very
A hedge is a woodland in miniature. Hedges are probably one of the most underrated habitats in our gardens. I haven’t had more than three feet of one in any of my houses until now. I was reminded of this
Urban Nightmare. It wasn’t a prompt that inspired me, until I combined it with #30DaysWild! Thank you to the team at Write Edit Publish, for continuing to promote this bimonthly feast of flash fiction. You can see other offerings at
My wildflowers are due for delivery today. So yesterday I checked out what’s at the bottom of my garden at the moment. Wildflowers au naturel These all made their home in my garden of their own accord. Earlier there was
My Random Act of Wildness yesterday was finding insects in unusual places. That was just what Norfolk Wildlife Trusts were suggesting. I don’t think they meant tackling ants in my food cupboards. That’s what I spent Sunday night doing, anyway!
This second week of 30 Days Wild has not gone so well. I blogged about Monday’s trip through the New Forest at Dusk, which was the most wild thing I’ve done really. Tuesday my composting worms arrived, so I used
The Seed Savers series by Sandra Smith has been one of my joys to read over the last few years. I didn’t really understand Sandy’s use of the Bible as a teaching method in book 1, but now I realise
