30 Days Wild Day 23 Creating a Garden Part 2

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 23 – Creating a Garden Part 2

Last week I helped a friend to create a garden – a wildflower and edible space for the family to relax in. Having planted up our initial flowers and vegetables and herbs it was evident that a few more plants were required to finish the design. We focus on adding some more colour through lavender and a flower from the amaranth family.

It has been a really hot week so it has been great to see all the plants that were budding come into full flower. Below is a photo of one of the main containers the week we planted it and this week.

The vegetables are all growing nicely…

The herbs are also going well….

And here are the new plants we potted up yesterday….
