Day 15 – 30 Days Wild

Today I visited an Urban Organic Micro Farm, called Rea Spring Gardens – which is a short walk away. It is own and ran by a lovely, enthusiastic couple, Charlie and Ashley, who farm with wildlife and the environment in mind ๐ŸŒ

In the video below, you get to see what they grow and the animals they keep! ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ

Day 10 – 30 Days Wild

Most of the day was chilly & grey, but when there was a warm sunny spell, the Bees came out in force to feed on the Cranesbill Geraniums etc in the garden ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’š ๐ŸŒธ

Day 9 – 30 Days Wild

Today I did try to get better footage of the House Sparrows, but they weren’t playing ball ๐Ÿ˜…

So when I noticed some interesting Black Garden Ant behaviour, I decided to focus on them instead today ๐Ÿœ ๐Ÿ˜Š

Day 5 – 30 Days Wild

After a lovely walk around my local wood & a wee heritage site, I got back to find a beautiful Butterfly basking in the sun, in the garden, & I managed get some lovely footage of it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Day 4 – 30 Days Wild

On Monday, whilst walking passed some Foxgloves with my Mom up the Waseley Hills Country Park, I remembered that we had some seeds at the back of one of the kitchen cupboards ๐Ÿ˜‰

BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2017

Last year I did separate videos of my interviews with the at gardening celebs / presenters and garden designers.

This year I thought it would be better to edit the interviews etc of the show, into one video and that’s exactly what I’ve done in the short video below:

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_12

After work, I decided to go for a nice stroll with a colleague and friend, Sophie.  We sauntered around the semi-rural outskirts of Northfield Town Centre (in South Birmingham).

Before we got to the location Sophie had in mind, literally just a few yards from where we work, we noticed beside the path (there is a grass verge) was a patch of Bird’s-foot-Trefoil.  I informed Sophie it is also know as Eggs and Bacon.  We saw some bees buzzing around it, so we observed and followed them from flower to flower.

I took a short video:

Thanks. ๐Ÿ
