The Wildlife Trusts in the UK have challenged people to go wild throughout June this year. So for the month of June, I am blogging each day about a random act of wildness!
Travelling and wildlife go together. Landscapes, cityscapes and skyscapes all hold an abundance of wildlife to enjoy. We can often miss the little pockets of wildlife that are all around us and we pass by every day. So I am enjoying this challenge as a way to stay more present to my surroundings and to notice what wildlife already forms part of my daily life.
30 Days Wild Day 11 – Duncan Terrace Gardens
As the 30-day challenge has progressed I have noticed more and more community gardens in London that I had previously not known existed. One community garden that I pass on my walk to work is Duncan Terrace Gardens on City Road, not far from Angel Underground station.
So, today on my walk home I popped into this secret garden to see what wildlife was around. I was charmed.
Here is a little bit about Duncan Terrace Gardens:
The gardens are long and narrow and contain a number of types of wildlife from flowers, to birds and insects. Here is a selection of what I saw today:
There was also another feature that caught my attention when I looked up into the tree canopy. Duncan Terrae Gardens – London Fieldworks Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven.
