For me an important part of keeping my general well-being healthy is strongly linked with my connection to nature. Being outside and noticing the song of earth and of spring awakening is a joy to witness. It certainly keeps my feet rooted to the ground and my heart open. I decided for my own pleasure really to keep a week long nature diary. Every day without fail nature shows up, and what better a time of year to capture an essence of that. This is my March collection. 🙏💚🙏
Puff balls ready to realise their spores. Random fact, mushroom spores are omnipresent meaning we freely breath them in. We are all part mushroom!
You can’t see it but there’s a red squirrel running up the tree. Faeries bonnet/fox gloves coming out and a remains of a giant puffball mushroom.
Chaga growing in a birch tree. This fungus has wonderful health properties, check it out, and a wee primrose. Nature succeeds to thrive in the most unlikely places.
Water droplets covered everything this morning. Moles busy tilling the earth. A dead and decomposing fox.
Geese flying freely overhead, yellow flowers are celandines and the bonny pink ones are wild currants and one of the first things to flower in spring, great for the bumblebees which can wake up early.
First dandelion of the season, remains of what I think has been a pigeon coming to the water for an early morning drink, amazing geometry in a thistle, fancy daffodils, catkins on hazel, bonny plant not sure what coming into bloom, first sign of yellow on the broom.
Fallen polypore bracket fungus, rich colours on Berberis shrub and cigar on the cigar tree? Amethysts.
