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 I did okay. I managed to squeeze some sort of blog post out most days, anyway.
Third week summary
Apart from the second week review, I posted about the problem I have with ants. I still have ants turning up in unusual places, but not in the quantities there were in the kitchen. They come and go, but mainly we have reached a truce, I think.
Was wildflower day! My most wild bit of the week, I think. The good thing about planting them out on Tuesday evening was that the rain arrived in large quantities for the next few days. Not enough to turn it back into a bog, but enough to make these wet-loving plants feel at home.
My Urban Fox Nightmare flash fiction. Thank you for all the nice comments.
Hedges and garden waste, in honour of the arrival of my municipal Garden Waste collection.
Weekend just gone:
Well it mostly focused on decorating the spare room and the boys’ room now the decorator has finished all the hard work. My shoulders have been aching from holding the heavy paint can in one hand while painting the top of the walls, and keeping my balance on the stepladder. My wrist still hurts, too. I’m sure hanging wallpaper used to be more enjoyable.
I did get out for a walk in the woods, though. That was good. I think that with lockdown easing, I ought to plan to get out and about a bit more this coming week. It’s forecast to get hot by the end of the week. I imagine everyone else will be trying to get to a beach, or a river., but I’d really like to get out and explore my new county a bit.
So we head into the last week for this year’s #30DaysWild. Fingers crossed for some good things to report on!
