30 days wild: day 3-cook in the sunshine

This morning wasn’t massively wild. We went to nursery for a craft fair. We won some cereal bars (not the most exciting prize) on the tombola and bought some nice wildlife cards.

Then had a tea and scone at one of the local churches coffee mornings. They had a band playing and it was rather jolly. Alice got a bit bored though, so took her walking on the grass at the back of the church. She did enjoy her digestive biscuit from the church. Took the better part of an hour to finish it though.

The afternoon fitted in a bit more wild activities. I keep well topped up bird feeders, but being 30 days time I thought I’d spoil them, so they’ve got the full range of options on the front and back garden feeders.

After Alice had her nap she joined me in the garden complete with her new explorer hat. We had bought her a watering can of her own a few days back, but hadn’t given it to her yet. She knew what to do with it straight away. She’s obviously watched me well. Didn’t give her any water yet though as didn’t fancy changing her just before tea.

I also added to the gardens wildlife provision planting the free seed mix that came with the 30 days pack and some night scented stock. It’s loved by moths apparently.

We finished off with tea on our new barbecue ticking the wild act food in the sunshine. Alice was a bit fractious though and wailed throughout taking some of the enjoyment away. Then she smeared beans on her new hat. Good job it looks like it’s easy to clean.

Then managed a quick wild act while putting Alice to bed. The RSPB have an online petition placing nature on the agenda for the election. Only takes a minute to do if you feel inclined.

Now we’ve got an evening ahead of chilling watching fantastic beasts and where to find them. A rare night as parents we are going to try and sit down and watch a movie. I’ll leave this blog with a picture of my previously mentioned poppies that we’re looking nice today and a Bee enjoying a cornflower.

  1. Hello again, firstly, thank you for linking up to #MyGloriousGardens. Having read through your post and site we have a lot in common! I’m also a primary teacher (although thankfully, part time at the moment!) and am in Early Years (I think you are?) I’m Forest School trained and am a bit fanatical about nature and “passing on” skills and knowledge to the next generation of children associated with wildlife and ecology. Your daughter is very cute and looks right at home with her little watering can! I hope we can chat again and good luck with your blog. I’m report writing today (blah!) but it’s raining so it could be worse! I will put this post onTwitter a few times this week plus on my Facebook page so I hope you get a few more views and meet other bloggers. Thanks again! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜ƒπŸŒΈπŸŒ³
