Day 12: It’s been a very wet June. To embrace this dreich weather for 30 Days Wild, I went for a mindful walk in the rain.
A wood pigeon cooed and magpies foraged for worms on sweet smelling grass. I felt the cold breath of wind on my cheek, the tickle of a raindrop as it coursed down my nose. The patter of rain on the path and the rustle of leaves.
Though I am 42 I enjoyed looking for puddles to jump into.
On Friday 22nd March it snowed for most of the day! I remember well this time last year, we were sitting in the garden enjoying the warm sun! What a difference a year makes!
I had finished work at the university for the three week Easter break and spent the day looking at the falling snow drift past my window and at the visiting garden birds to my feeders. At one stage there were 25! Goldfinches sitting in the surrounding trees. Blue Tits and Magpies visited for the home made bread we had left out the day before.
Below find video compilation I made of the visiting birds this cold ‘spring’ day.
