30 days wild challenge

I’ve decided to try the 30 days Wild challenge this year. This is something that I wanted to take part in last year but found I was too busy. This year I am determined to do this even though I’m busy so will try to take a photo everyday and post it on my Instagram account. I will also post a blog post now and then to try and roundup what I’ve been up to. If you would like to take part take a look here .

As today is the first day of the challenge, I’d like to share with you some photos I took during a dog walk. I actually took these yesterday but we returned to this field today as it was just so pretty with all the poppies there. We do live in a beautiful part of the world and I feel blessed everyday to have these views near where I live.

  • Okay, so while the photos show bucolic fields of flowers in “Merry Old England”, here in the central part of Texas the term has a whole different connotation. Why just yesterday morning I had to remove a snake from the garage and in the afternoon I drove over a 3 foot rattlesnake in the middle of a road (fortunately someone drove over it first — bonus points if you’re the first car to drive over the rattler). I do NOT live in the countryside but live in a city. In Central Texas, or all of Texas for that matter, we operate/live on a 365 day wild challenge (366 days if it’s a leap year).

    • The challenge involves getting involved in nature and encouraging wildlife back in. It sounds as if you have plenty yes, but isn’t that a good thing? I realise that some of your wild creatures can kill you (I have been to Texas btw) but the whole point is that we want to protect the creatures and wildlife we have in this world for future generations. Personally, I think you are lucky to experience such abundant wildlife whilst living in a city. It may be annoying but it has a place in the world. Thanks for commenting and debating with me!

  • Puppies and a field of wildflowers…it doesn’t get much better than that!💚

    • It’s a great challenge for a great cause. X

  • Gorgeous fields of poppies! I love that you caught the dog mid-sniff.

    • Yes, i thought as I’m so busy this month, I would complete this challenge instead and this photo was so cute! Are you able to keep Ann happy over at Gardeninglimited and link up one of your lovely posts for the June link party?

    • Thank you Gill. They are so stunning.

  • What a fabulous thing to do to help your wellbeing at this busy time (get outdoors) and also to help you keep your blogging mojo with such a lovely focus. Love the pics of the poppy fields and the dogs! xxx #pointshoot

    • That’s what I thought Hayley. I’m almost done with the reports but I’m so enjoying taking a break from writing posts.

  • I agree, you certainly are lucky to live in such a beautiful area. Dottie and Murray are super cute too. I would want to retire to that field every day if it was on my doorstep. Thank you for linking up to #pointshoot 📷

    • There are so many poppies around at the moment. I wonder if it was the snow earlier in the Spring.

  • Love your photos, my favourite is the Labrador sniffing the flowers! we’re pretty good at getting outdoors but I must make more of an effort for the 3o days wild – it’s such a great idea. #AdventureCalling

  • Very nice! Thanks for the share. Really like the pictures too. Certainly, makes me miss England. Will check out your Instagram. #AdventureCalling

  • Glad you’re enjoying 30 Days Wild, me too. This is my first year and it’s been an eye-opener just how much nature we actually see each day and take for granted. Photographing for 30 Days really brings it home. #AdventureCalling

    • I agree Lucy. I love that I am now looking for the wild each day and sometimes it can be the smallest thing can’t it?

  • This is such a great challenge. Even though you have to commit to 30 consecutive days getting outside for just 15 minutes a day would be an amazing achievement for some people. Thanks for joining us on #adventurecalling

    • It is a great challenge David. Thank you for commenting. Have you completed this one? It’s great for little children.
