A couple of weeks ago I finally got my hands on this beautiful collection of nature tales collected and edited by Kate Stephenson on ‘Kate on Conservation’. Over the last couple of weeks I have read a few of the stories but this weekend I finally managed to get in a good reading session and finish the book. This book is such an inspiration of all things nature from people and places the world over. So many different experiences all collected into a lovely book. Nature is one
Here is a list of some of the charities aiming to make a difference to the natural world. Raising money for charity works wonders for the cause you are supporting and for you. Helping you feel apart of something bigger. It is all very well and good raising this money with the intention of sending it to a charity that you believe in. But, with so many different options out there now it can become quite overwhelming. If you are new to this and just beginning to think about ways
Hey everyone, Last year I took some Buxus cuttings from existing plants in my garden and to be completely honest I planted them in soil after dipping them in rooting powder and just left them. In all honesty we hadn’t decided where they would go if they took and so I completely forgot about them. Sunday was a pretty nice day and a good time to get out into the garden and plan some of this years garden to-do’s. It was during this time I found the pot I’d stuck the cuttings in.
The weather her in the UK has been a bit hit and miss lately. But if there’s one thing I love about the warmer days and evenings it’s sitting outside on quiet early evenings and listening to the birds.
It’s calming and peaceful for the mind and body and a delightful way to avoid the tv and chat about anything and everything with my husband. Our favourite wine to enjoy in or out at the moment is ‘Fête des flaveurs’. This wine goes down a little too easily and often find ourse
Nature is all around us. But often we are so busy in our day to day routines that we don’t see it or we forget to notice it. Canterbury is one of those vibrant cities that boosts a myriad of events to fill up anyones social calendar. However, it also boasts beautiful nature in the heart of the city. A couple of weeks ago I was in Canterbury early in the morning. Everyone was just starting work and shops where beginning to open. I wasn’t interested in that as much as looking f
Spring has finally begun to show its face and I am all for it. So today I want to share five things that I will be doing to fully immerse myself in Nature. 1: Earthing or Grounding As spring finally begins to bloom around us there is no better time than to ground and immerse yourself within the season. A great way to connect is to remove shoes and socks and walk or stand barefoot on the grass. Allowing the healing electrolytes from the earth to be soaked up by and soothe the
This past weekend has been extremely nostalgic. Last week I went to Deal (Nature Journal 2) and lots of memories arose. However, this past weekend had me remembering all over again with a drive through and walk along the Hythe Canal. When I was very young I had family living in Hythe and so my mum would often pick my brother and I up and take us over there to visit. As soon as I started driving past the row of trees that line the canal I felt a wave of calm drop over me like
It’s been raining for what feels like weeks. But over the last few days something has changed. The skies have grown a brighter blue and the clouds have slowly dissipated from the ugly dark grey to white and fluffy and then nothing at all. Leaving a sea of blue above us in the sky. I’m in Deal in Kent today with a friend and our children. We have parked along the coastline road with a view over the green to the pebble beach and the azure blue sea beyond. It’s such a bright and
