Day 17: In keeping with tradition, Thursday’s are Throw Back Thursdays, where I take a look back on what Random Acts of Wildness I did for 30 Days Wild since 2015!
In 2020 I smelled a wild scent and got up close with red squirrels in 2019. 2018 saw me forest bathing and in 2017 I looked for something blue and found borage. I went wild swimming in 2016 and rescued a bee in 2015.
For 2021 I’ll look out for bees.
Last week while cleaning the bird feeders a bumblebee flew into the house and ended upside down in a puddle of washing up liquid in the sink! I fished her out and left her to dry in the yarden. Not more than 30 minutes had passed when she had cleaned herself up and flew away!
In the yarden today, there were five types of bees flying about, tree and buff tailed bumblebees, a blue mason bee, a leaf cutter bee and a female hairy footed flower bee. All made me feel joyous to watch them as they went on their foraging ways.
What is your favourite bee?
Thanks for reading, and stay wild!
