Day 6: Continuing from my 2018 30 Days Wild, Thursday’s will be know as Throw Back Thursday’s!
In 2018 I went in search of worms. The smell of rain or petrichor scented the air in 2017. I read a wild book in 2016 and in 2015 I bought homes for wildlife. For this year I’ll revisit the #randomactofwildness of reading a Wild book!
There can be nothing more wild than 365 Days Wildby Lucy McRobert. This beautiful book is packed full with nature inspired ideas for every day and every season.
Day 6: This Wednesday I decided to go in search of worms in the yarden. I looked under plant pots and piles of leaf litter. As it’s been dry for some time here in the NW of England I was not very successful in my search. I should have waited until it rained!
All I found was lots of tigers! Tiger Worms, and a very energetic centipede that I couldn’t photograph, (it was that fast!)
Tiger Worms are litter dwellers and are often found in compost heaps. They consume dead plant material and their manure fertilises the soil. They are also great aerators of soil.
So, even though my search wasn’t that successful I discovered I had tigers in the yarden. 🙂
