Permaculture principles to simplify your gardening. Cut your workload and improve your ecosystem too.
I did my best to blog daily during 30 Days Wild. I missed a few days and I’m now finishing up with the multi-day post. To be honest I’m still pretty pleased with how well I’ve done. Given the health challenges I face during heat waves, a house move and a total lack of Wi-Fi…Continue reading The End of #30DaysWild
At this point I was still very much in recovery mode. Busy days (like those on the 23rd & 24th) usually leave me knackered for a good few days. I did manage to get out and check my trail camera. After sifting through literally hours of footage (which in it’s self is awesome) I have…Continue reading Day 26 of #30DaysWild – Trail Cam Highlights Reel
Following the theme of the last few weeks I am running late. Day 25 was largely spent recovering from the previous two days of busy volunteering. While pottering around the garden, reading and painting furniture in a half-hearted way, I spent a fair while watching the birds on the feeding station. It’s lovely to see…Continue reading Day 25 of #30DaysWild – Starlings on camera.
I’m combining two days because I didn’t do much wild on either of them. I thought I’d do a quick post explaining why. If you follow my social media you’ll know I’ve been rather busy. Friday the 23rd, I spent the day in Stowmarket at the Suffolk Coalition of Disabled People‘s AGM. I gave a…Continue reading Days 23 & 24 of #30DaysWild
Today the muggy heat has really finished me off. I’m tachycardic, woozy and my stomach is angrier than normal thanks to my autonomic issues. I’d quite like to curl up in a ball in front of an open fridge and stay there for the whole day. I do struggle with heat intolerance but what really…Continue reading Day 22 of #30DaysWild – PoTS (not the plant kind) & Squabbling Starlings.
So I’m back to blogging a day or two behind. Our original WiFi activation date has been put back by a week and a half. I’m a little annoyed especially given that I work from home.. on the computer. I’d moved my office over to the new address expecting internet but alas it’s not happened.…Continue reading Day 21 of #30DaysWild – Summer Solstice
I’m all caught up! Blogging on the right day for a change. Today I was up bright and early and spent a very enjoyable breakfast watching birds on the feeders. My favourite garden birds are Gold Finches, at the old home we had them occasionally, they we’re very flighty and never below the tree-tops for…Continue reading Day 20 of #30DaysWild – Green Finches, Gold Finches & Garden Development
I’m sure some of you are sick of starlings by now but I still love them and they are everywhere. Today I thought I’d share a few photos of a fledgling starling. This little one is in a nest above our driveway. Nesting in the guttering of the house two doors down. I think this…Continue reading Day 19 of #30DaysWild – Baby Starling & the Pants Moth
I seem to be chronically behind with this blogging.. Sunday was car boot sale day! We once again hit the Foxhall stadium sale in search of furniture. This time we were after a TV unit since the TV installation date was the 19th. We did manage to get a TV unit, which is now in…Continue reading Day 18 of #30DaysWild – Statues & Starlings
