Calendar of Firsts 21 ~27 March 2016

cal of firstsc1.jpg

My Calendar of Firsts for this week:

  • The first Bumblebee of the year flew past the window!
  • A huge ‘Lenten Moon’ hung heavy and golden in the sky
  • Lots of frogspawn in the pond, plus Rose found 9 toads (but mysteriously, no frogs! Perhaps they have finished spawning already?)
  • The opposite page in my journal this week is a map my big girl Elianna made for Rose; it is a treasure map to find her Easter eggs 🙂

My ‘colours’ for the week, along the top left hand page, where simply the blues and greys of this week’s sky.

  1. Hi Lynn

    Our tadpoles have hatched! They are busily chomping on algae and growing quickly. I really thought spring had sprung on Friday it was so beautiful, since Saturday it has gone back to winter. On Good Friday I saw my first butterflies, three species, small tortoiseshell, brimstone and a peacock, so I have started my list at last. I am still behind with my sketching, hopefully I will be able to grab some time today while we are quiet.

    Toads great, I haven’t seen one yet, not seen many frogs either come to that. Love your bumble bee, I can almost hear her buzzing. What a lovely idea of Elianas to draw a map for Rose, definitely a treasure to keep.

    Best wishes
