How will You Enjoy and celebrate Nature in June?

I can't believe it's June already! Some people say that Summer starts today, others wait until the solstice, personally I think Summer starts when it wants to start! It's certainly a great time of year to enjoy nature, and there are lots of projects to help you do that. 

30 Days Wild is a project from the UK's Wildlife Trusts encouraging people to do something wild every day this month - find out more and sign up here

International Nature Journaling Week is an opportunity to use creative writing and art to record what you see around you in nature. Today's prompt is Colour! You can find inspiration for this topic here.

Big Meadow Search, one of many nature surveys going on at this time of year, is a UK wide project to raise awareness and interest in grasslands and to record plant species. You can survey any grassland, including a grassy cemetery or a park, and you don't need to be an expert botanist to take part. Find out more here.

"Summer starts when it wants to start" - I really like that sentiment. I spend a lot of time painting and paint making from plants and flowers from the garden. Thanks so much for sharing the links.
