30 Days Wild: Day 3, Spying a Rainbow of Colours
Firstly we saw green - easily and immediately - in the grass (and trees etc) around us.
Next was blue in the sky when the clouds parted,
quickly followed by the yellow sun.
The remaining three was a bit trickier, until we drove past a large beautiful bush with dark purple foliage.
Then Eldest yelled out that he had seen some poppies, crossing red off the list.
The last one took about ten minutes, until Eldest's eagle eyes noticed a tiny orange money-spider crawling along a web that it had made inside the car, fom the steering wheel to the dashboard.
No photos - sorry, but I was driving at the time!
So we still weren't strictly out in the wild - but rather in the car moving through the wild - it did help us to pay more attention to the beautiful world around us, and that's something! And the boys may have been absorbed in their consoles at gaming club, but you can be sure that I made good use of the beautiful day and sat out in the garden, taking in the fresh air and peaceful surroundings - very restful it was too!
