Calendar of Firsts

Blackberries, Bumblebees, and conkers.

Current Nature Journaling


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.
Midsummer is a lovely time to begin a Phenology Wheel, if you haven’t yet begun your own. I’ve written a guide all about keeping a Phenology Wheels.
