Our Nature Journals Week 15

 

We have had some lovely walks this week, along with some beautiful, spring weather, though as I type, it is pouring with rain.

My husband took some smashing photographs of one of the swans.

How handsome!

Rose hasn’t done any journaling this week; I did a spread of a tree study I did of the trees in the meadow:

In my Calendar of Firsts I sketched the Bluebells that are beginning to bloom in the garden, a Buttercup from the meadow, the bats that flutter over the garden in the evenings, and this month’s full Egg Moon.

Happy exploring!

March Phenology Wheels

Back in January, we began to keep phenology wheels to record not only the changes in the natural world, but also the festivals of the liturgical year that we celebrate.

Here are our entries for March, which Rose worked on whilst I read from the March chapter of Roald Dhal My Year, which we are thoroughly enjoying.

Rose decided to record a frog, as we have had both frogs and toads in abundance, along with symbols for Ash Wednesday and Mothering Sunday.

I recorded the Vernal equinox, Pussy Willow, and tadpoles, along with symbols for Ash Wednesday.
