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…

Robin’s First Trip to the Woods – Day 17 of #30DaysWild

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.

Blue Tits in the Garden – Day 8 of #30DaysWild 2017

Day 8 of the #30DaysWild takes a look at a Blue Tit nest we found at my partner’s parents house. For the last few years a bright red Royal Mail nest box has been up on the house waiting for a two birds to move in and start a family. This year was the first…

Colouring In Bugs for Babies – Day 6 of #30DaysWild 2017
