The Wildlife Trusts in the UK has 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 26 – Richmond Thames Path and Cambridge Garden
Today I had an appointment in Richmond. A few years ago I helped to create a wildflower garden in Cambridge Garden, and so I paid a visit to see how it was flowering.
The Thames Path and Cambridge Gardens contain some different types of grasses.
Some of the trees and plants were already fruiting.
On the Thames, there were ducks, geese and herons.
There are lots of wildflowers in Cambridge Gardens.
It was lovely to see how many wildflowers were growing in Cambridge Gardens. The flowers were well frequented by various types of bees and butterflies.
