My Calendar of Firsts for this week:
- The Foxgloves are flowering.
- In the garden we spotted a Speckled Wood butterfly
- Also a Common Hawker dragonfly
- Last night’s moon was gorgeous! Almost full.
What is happening in the natural world where you live?

Your flower list must be coming on well? The foxglove is a family favourite over here, we saw some lovely specimens this weekend on our trip to a local reserve. My daughter enjoyed seeing Great crested grebe chicks for the first time 🙂 . We were lucky enough to go with someone who really knew their wildflowers so I have learnt a few new ones. We spotted a pretty little black butterfly which turned out to be a chimney sweeper moth! I have got enough to draw for the rest of the month.
We did Den day for Save the Children on Saturday night which was a huge hit. My son made a bivvy and spent the night in it. My daughter invited a friend and us girls slept in the tent, the girls turned their half into a massive nest with sleeping bags, blankets, cushions and cuddly friends.
I will look out for the full moon tonight! Hope your family is well.
