Our Nature Journals Week 14

As always, a mixed bag weather-wise. Rose was padding in the pond at the beginning of the week, (I know, it’s only just turned April, but she’s a pretty hardy child!) and by the end, we were all wrapped up again in our woollens!

Here are my wee nature group: We didn’t do any journaling this week, I just let them play and explore. The weather was so fine, we stayed out much longer than usual. We then retuned home for lunch and journaling, but the girls became interested in a snail they found in the garden, and I decided to leave them to more exploration.

The rest of the week has not been conducive to study. Rose has been poorly with a virus, and sadly her beloved guinea pig, Nibbler passed away. Here they are together in happier times.

Here is my journal for the week. The Dog Violets are beginning to bloom along my garden path, which is always such a joy! I also cheated a little, and sketched the wee blackbird we spotted last week.

  1. I found the first wood anemones, also hepaticus and a single brave crocus flowering this week. The coltsfoot are stretching tall now and lilac buds are swelling. More migratory birds are returning and nest building is beginning. We are getting some warmer days at last, but it is still hovering around freezing point in the early mornings and snow is forecast for next week. So sorry about the guinea pig, they have such big personalities don’t they.
