Changing up my personal mature study this week with a pet study.
Much needed rains and English Ivy berries
I have had a lot going on at home, and got a little behind with my Calendar of Firsts, but now I’m all caught up!
Blackberries, Bumblebees, and conkers.
St. Swinthin’s Day, ripe raspberries in the garden, and a Dragonfly flying overhead at twilight. Possibly a Hawker.
Rosie’s Phenology Wheel.
Currently, there is a wild fire raging on the moors near to our home. Rose has been greatly upset by the impact this is having on our local wildlife, hence her sketch for June.
In the mid-section, she recorded the Summer Solstice.
My own entry for June:
The Summer Solstice, and a Wild Rose. In the mid-section, I recorded Saint John’s Tide.
Calendar of Firsts: Week 26
A Roe Deer that crossed our path this week, and the Moors’ wild fires
, which are sadly burning near our home.
The Full Flower Moon, Daisies and Forget me nots.
Goat Willow, Lady’s Smock, and some Daisies crept in there, too.
Bluebells and Orange Tip butterfly
