Here are snippets of my adventures over the last few days for #30DaysWild...

Days Four to Six 

 

 

 

 

 I took a stroll down the River Kent in Kendal. I saw various gulls, mallard and swallows darting about near the surface of the water

       

 

 

 

 

 

 

It did not stop raining today, from the minute I woke up to the minute I went to bed. A colleague suggested I go and have a look at the pond in our office gardens. Perfect timing as the rain held off for just a few minutes. It was amazing to see how much life there was surrounding the pond – especially flowers, including ragged robin and yellow iris.The gardens and pond are open to the public so you are more than welcome to come and have a wander. 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Days Six to Eight 

I picked these great little butterfly stencils up the other day and had an experiment session.    

                                                             

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I particularly like the two colours and intricate detailing in this one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I met up with a friend for lunch today – on the only sunny day of the week which was lucky! It was lovely to have lunch in the sun the middle of a busy day at work.

           

 

Days Nine to Twelve 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm doing a print making evening course at the moment, and absolutely loving it. This week was screenprinting, so I did an underwater themed one for World Ocean Day today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After a rather mixed week weather wise, it was nice to be able to nip out for a walk at lunch. There is a walk down a lane that I do on a regular basis with other staff members.

I started the working week off right with an evening walk in the local park. 

 

What's everyone else been doing? I can't believe we're nearly at the mid-way point of  #30DaysWild already!
