enjoying some warmer weather with no rain.
Just right for a day at the Big Nature Festival on Saturday which was handily being held locally. Knowing that I would be sharing this on a meme created by Sian, the Champion of Storytelling, I couldn’t pass by this site/sight
Plenty of stalls to browse plus some interesting talks on
- using wild plants such as nettle, dandelion, clover
- 10 local places that are great for seeing nature. I had to laugh and applaud at the last item – Aroundandabout – a reminder to keep your eyes open wherever you are for interesting plants and beasties
- a park ranger led walk talking about the creation of the area from the ash piles deposited by the local coal burning power station. Lots of interesting stuff but the downside is that we were walking at park ranger speed – although I suspect he thought he was slowing down for us!
Then on Sunday I enjoyed a bit of cute animal crochet with a great free pattern for baby guinea pigs from the talented Kati Galusz
Waving to you all before I head out to enjoy more clear weather – have to use it when it is here!
