Start the day with a walk through the woods. Look for a tree to admire, or maybe even to climb.
Wander a little further and you will find a metal gate to wander through.
Exploring the field you find a badger sett, and you wonder at the creatures that lie beneath the earth.
On your route home you stop by the lake to cool your feet in the water.
You finish the day by the camp fire toasting marshmallows.
Inspired by the Lens artist photo challenge this week – elements.
Cee’s black and white photo challenge on small subjects got me thinking I could share some more bee photos. Even in black and white bees look amazing.
There is so much in our wonderful world to love. Celebrate world biodiversity day by having a walk in nature.
Yes, it is the day to celebrate our wonderful pollinators.

If you do just one thing this week – plant some flowers for bees.

Work has been busy, so garden jobs are mounting up, but thankfully many things just go on doing their thing, without my help.
So here are this week’s Six on saturday.
I love many of the old cottage garden flowers and have lupins in blue, pink and purple. Always popular with bumblebees.
This lovely small purple Geranium was given to me by a friend. It isn’t in the best place, hidden behind some sage plants, so need to either propagate more plants or move.
All herbs are good pollinator plants and this lavender doesn’t appear to get as leggy as other varieties.
The blue ones seem to have gone over very quickly, but this one is still giving a good display. Single flower varieties will be used by bumblebees.
Always ready to add a dash of colour.
The native bugle is a great little bee plant. This cultivated form has lovely dark crimson leaves and it readily spreads if you let it.
