Our Nature Journals : Week 19

This week has been gloriously sun-shiny; perfect English weather! Everywhere is bursting with life.

In my meadow journal I painted Dandelion seed heads, Curly dock, Meadow Fescue, Sweet Vernal Grass, Alder, and the Alder Leaf Beetle, which was actually thought to be extinct in the UK until a few years ago.

Our caterpillars arrived this week, so Rose chose to sketch on in her journal. I adore the sweet simplicity, but accuracy of her sketch!

In my Calendar of Firsts, I recored the full Milk Moon, and the flowering Holly tree in the garden.

What is happening in nature where you live?
