Rosie’s Phenology Wheel for April

She sketched one of her new pets: A rat named Roy! For the special day section, she sketched a log. We had a special funeral ceremony for a wee dead frog that she found; it was sent away down the water on a log.
Love that girl!


My Phenology Wheel for April

A Dandelion & Daisy, along with Easter Day & St. Georges Day for the liturgical / special day section.

Our Nature Journaling


This week’s Calendar of Firsts features a very handsome Pheasant, we have seen several of late.


Rosie’s Phenology Wheel is a new pretty Rock Dove that has taken to visiting the garden, and a hot cross bun to represent Good Friday.


My Phenology Wheel for March includes Daffodils and Holy Week.

If you’d like some inspiration for keeping your own Phenology Wheel, I have written the Phenology Wheel Guide that will hold your hand as you begin. Keeping a phenology wheel is a smashing way for you and your family to connect both with nature and each other. A way for all the family to gather together to spend time nature journaling; it doesn’t take up much time at all, and is perfect for families who have children of different ages and stages. Everyone can work together, but at their own level.
