7 Days not very Wild - Day 4 - 4 July 2015





7 Days not very Wild - Trying to do something wild each day


My idea is that sometimes even if we look for that great wild thing in nature, it can be hard to find because of all sorts of reasons mainly to do with humans destroying the world.

Having celebrated the nature we can find for 30 days, I wanted to highlight the nature I couldn't find for 7 days, sort of as a warning that things aren't just hunky dory.




Day 4 - A wildflower meadow cut

The wildflower meadow field  behind our house cut down in it's prime.  If we paid the farmer, would he leave it long and say know to the cattle that graze on it the rest of the summer?

I think this is a definite case for rewilding, letting it turn back to how it was naturally.
