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.
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.

A Roe Deer that crossed our path this week, and the Moors’ wild fires
, which are sadly burning near our home.

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!

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