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
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
Saturday was hot, in fact this whole week is hot. Really hot. Many of my regular readers will know but for those new wild folks my PoTS causes a lot of issues with temperature regulation, as a result I’m pretty heat intolerant. It makes doing almost anything a huge challenge. This whole heat wave has…Continue reading Day 17 of #30DaysWild – Empty feeders & Starling Silhouette Photos
Nearly up to date! Yesterday was day 16 of 30 Days Wild and it’s all about wild flowers. A LOT of yesterday was spent in the garden. This heat wave is hard going for my PoTS but it’s fantastic for getting paint dry so I’m getting loads of furniture painted. While hanging out in the…Continue reading Day 16 of #30DaysWild – Wild Flowers
Once again a day behind but here goes. I’m going to start with a summary of our new home and garden. We’re based on the Ravenswood estate in the south-east of Ipswich. The house is a large two bedroom, mid-terrace with well-proportioned but irregular shaped rooms. The house is the middle bit of a terrace…Continue reading Day 13 of #30DaysWild – Intro to the new home.
