Air Drying Clay & Flowers – Day 21 of # 30DaysWild

Day 21 of #30DaysWild was another crafty activity involving air drying clay and foliage. This was something Robin and I tried last year, but sadly as the clay dried it cracked. This time I did a bit more research on materials and technique and I have to say I’m delighted with the results! Although Robin…

Visiting Hazlehead Park – Day 12 of #30DaysWild

Day 12 of #30DaysWild was a trip to Hazlehead Park in Aberdeen. It’s been a while since we have been (not since lockdown) so it was a nice change in scenery. We even managed to get a coffee from a kiosk there too! Not long after we arrived we saw two girls from Robin’s nursery…

Pressing Flowers Using an Iron – Day 10 of #30DaysWild

Day 10 of #30DaysWild saw me pressing some flowers and leaves I had gathered both from the garden and out on a walk. I’ve certainly not done this in a very long time so I turned to Google for some advice, where I found out you could not only press flowers the old fashioned way…

Avocado Trees & Narwhal Sand Art – Day 8 of #30DaysWild

Day 8 of #30DaysWild was another day for indoor activities. Today we picked two smaller projects to get involved in. Activity 1 – Planting an Avocado Stone 🥑 This activity was included in our Mud and Bloom box but it’s easy enough to do yourself. All you need is 🥑 – an avocado, a glass…

Wildflowers – Day 5 of #30DaysWild

Day 5 of #30DaysWild is all about wildflowers. Before I speak about the wildflowers I gathered, I want to touch upon whether you should pick wildflowers or not. This topic divides opinion amongst many. However after seeking guidance from official sources picking wildflowers is ok as long as you do it responsibly and legally. Plantlife.org.uk…

Nature Inspired Books for Babies – Day 20 of #30DaysWild

Day 20 of #30DaysWild is all about nature inspired books for babies. As you can maybe tell from my #30DaysWild posts this year I am very keen to introduce Robin Oleander, my 4 month old son, to nature at a very young age! But sometimes it is not always possible to explore the outdoors. So…

If you go down to the woods today… You will find Robin, mummy and daddy doing day 17 of #30DaysWild! Today’s trip was to Countesswells woods in Aberdeen, a first for all the family. There were a few different options of walks all with varying lengths so we opted for the shortest. Although we had…

A Look Around the Garden – Day 16 of #30DaysWild

Day 16 of #30DaysWild takes a look around our garden. Robin has still been ill after his injections so we haven’t been able to venture far. Still there are plenty of interesting things to find at home. Daddy was out in the garden replenishing the bird food when he came across a dead baby bird…

Exploring the River Don – Day 15 of #30DaysWild

Day 15 of #30DaysWild looks at Robin and my walk down to the River Don. We are lucky enough to live really close to the River Don, it only takes us about five minutes to walk there from our house. Today first thing, Robin had his 4 month injections. So afterwards I decided we would…

A Wander Around Hazlehead Park – Day 13 of #30DaysWild

Day 13 of #30DaysWild saw Robin and I take a walk around Hazlehead Park in Aberdeen. Somewhere I have been many times, but the ever changing landscape makes every visit different. My walk around the park today is a route I often take, but as I started to walk around I came to realise that…

Mini Alpine Garden – Day 12 of #30DaysWild

Day 12 of #30DaysWild takes a look at my mini alpine garden I planted last year. At the beginning of last year I got interested in alpine plants. I can’t even remember where it came from. I think it was a combination of seeing massive succulents on my Instagram feed along with seeing alpine gardens…
