Calendar of Firsts ~ Week 31

My Calendar of Firsts for this week:

So much is going on in the natural world!

  • Still heaps & heaps of rain!
  • No more ripe raspberries in the garden, which has lead to a shortage of Raspberry Lemonade !
  • The blackberries in the garden are ripening, the apples are coming along nicely too.
  • Most days I walk past a Horse Chestnut tree, and most days I have been rewarded with a wee treasure on the ground.

You can watch a wee video here on my instagram account.

What is happening in the natural world where you live?

Happy exploring!

Calendar of Firsts ~ Week 30

My Calendar of Firsts for this week:

So much is going on in the natural world!

  • Still heaps & heaps of rain!
  • Lots of ripe raspberries in the garden, which has lead to the making of lots of Raspberry Lemonade 
  • The main star of the week has been this wee hedgehog. We haven’t seen the hedgehogs in the garden since last autumn. We knew they were there, as they were eating all the food we left out, and there was disturbance in the dry leaves. Yesterday we were treated to a lot of shuffling and woofling by this tiny, and most beautiful wee creature.
