Day 7 and a quiet day at home. After being out most of yesterday, I had housework and food shopping to catch up on. There was also the little matter of booking a short (UK) trip away :-) I'll tell you more about that another time.
Anyway, on to the challenge. When I signed up for 30 days wild, I had the idea of creating a crop circle on the lawn. After thinking about it more, I realised I'd probably have to do the cropping by hand which seemed too much of a faff. And so evolved the idea of creating polka dots instead. This way I can mow most of the lawn and just leave the circles.
Bye bye buttercups.
And hello to dots. They're not much to look at at the moment so I'll have to show you later in the month when the grass has grown longer. There are also other plants growing in the grass so it will be interesting to see how they develop.
The elephant in the clouds was definitely impressed and saluted as he drifted by.
I also picked up a pot of thyme at the supermarket to add to my herb collection. I'm hoping the bees will love it.
They're certainly loving the aubretia right now. This one had clearly been gorging itself as you can see the pouches full of nectar on its hind legs.
A couple of random shots of what else is flowering in the garden at the moment.
And last but not least, Chickpea and I went out this evening to try the kite again. The extra bit of breeze made all the difference and it took off with little effort.
Well, I made it through the first 7 days and have really enjoyed the challenge so far. The hardest part has probably been blogging every day so I might have to ease up on that and do a few compilations instead. I also have a couple of other posts to do aside from the challenge. Whatever happens, roll on the next week. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday - be wild! x
