I’m taking part in #30DaysWild, as I have done for the last few years. The Wildlife Trusts’ campaign encourages people to connect with nature each day in June.
It’s a great reminder of the loveliness that’s around, even on rainy days.
So far, I’ve watched bees and other pollinators, tended a tree and miniature garden I’m growing, planted tomatoes, visited the community allotment, admired clouds, met up with a local gardening organisation, and taken photos of flowers every colour of the rainbow, along with taking a close up view of the tiny plants that live in my lawn.
I’ve also felt the rain on my skin (and seen the plants perk up after their soaking).
Taking part in 30 Days Wild isn’t about going on constant countryside trips. Nature always finds a way – look for the natural beauty that surrounds you.
