Satisfaction is........?


Satisfaction is when the numbers all tumble over and you begin a new 100.

Back last year I did a blog called Hi Ho Silver where I set out on my trusty bike to conquer those extra pounds that were piling up. Well today my dial turned over to 1400 and what a great sense of elation and satisfaction I got as those numbers tumbled over.
The ponds have been shed but a relaxing holiday in sunny Malta recently added a few on. The buzz is back and they will soon be sliding off again.

The Great British Bee Count


I have been participating in the Great British Bee Count
by downloading the app onto you phone or tablet you can easily send information and photographs if you are quick enough!
So please take part and do you bit in monitoring our wonderful bees without the life would be very difficult.


These are just some of the foods that are pollinated by bees.



from 19 May to 30 June 2017

Discover the wonderful world of bees in our gardens,

streets and green spaces this summer.

Bees are essential; we rely on them to pollinate many of

our plants in the landscape, including most of our

fruit and vegetables.

But right now they are in trouble. Since 1900 the UK has lost

20 species of bee, and a further 35 are considered 

under the threat of extinction.

So it is better that we understand how they are doing 

across the country.

Last year 383,759 bees were spotted.

Help Friends of the Earth get a better picture of our 

population of bees.

This year they would love even more of us to join the buzz,

and be part of the generation that helped to save our bees.

 on the 19 May 2017.

 I have signed up - thank you for reading.

Bluebells


Today I was invited to look around a private woodland to see the mass of bluebells. What  a wonderful opportunity and one not to miss. Wow what a beautiful sight too.
A sea of blue and the fragrance was out of this world.
Also I got to see wild orchids, kingcups, primroses, naturalised lily of the valley. Huge swathes of them. Their tiny white bells just beginning to open. Seventeen Roe deer, 2 muncjacks, 6 hares, huge wood ants, pheasants, partridge, herons on their nest high up in the tree tops, peacocks and a Greylag goose, who had a nest of 6 eggs.
A  morning I won't forget in a hurry.
Thank you for dropping by.
