MOST RECENT

It's ages since I did a 'What's in Bloom', so I've been having a great time searching the marsh for plants in flower this August. As usual each has a micro tale on the page. Today, we have a story of nature, culture - and art! 🙂
The reedmace is today usually (wrongly) called the bulrush in Britain.
The artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema gets the blame for putting reedmace in his painting 'Moses in the Bulrushes'. But this is a myth; there's no such painting!
He did paint 'The Finding of Moses' (1904) but there is not a reedmace to be seen!

Around the same time though, pictures of the story of baby Moses were given away at Sunday schools. Some of these feature the distinctive shape of the reedmace, so perhaps they are actually the original culprits for the wrong plant being named! We shall probably never know!😉🙂💚 #drawnintonature #happythroughnature #naturejournal #bulrush #summerflowers #naturestudy #naturestories #artandnature

Silhouettes.
The desert is barren, as far as the eye can see. The heat is stifling, dry and the sky above is a wide expanse of blue. Two bare trees, their growth stunted, stand against the dunes; black against the shimmering orange gold. Let the wild be wild.

LADY OF THE FLIES
Just watching a Masterchef episode set in beautiful Katherine Gorge in the Northern Territory. It reminds me of a wonderful camping trip there almost 11 years ago, when I visited the Gorge in July.
Memorable were the endless flies which swarmed around relentlessly. Thankfully, I had been forewarned and prepared with a fisherman's hat with an inbuilt fly net that covered my face and upper body, providing welcome relief. Insect repellent just didn't work.
Unfortunately, the other members of my small group had no protection. Over the course of the day, increasing amounts of money were offered to buy my truly ugly hat. $350 wasn't enough for me to part with it 😀. Missed a good profit, but it was worth it.

Sometimes preparation really is beneficial and helps us to cope with real discomfort.

A walk around my patch this afternoon revealed more signs that autumn's coming. The first wild Michaelmas Daisies are out on the marsh, a good month earlier than normal, and guelder rose berries are fully red in August! This year's weather has certainly mixed things up for us here in the South West of Britain! It has given me some great ideas for journaling though!
Are you finding odd things happening in nature this year?

I loved this book! The story follows Kya, a young girl abandoned in the marshes of North Carolina at a very young age. She survives, but draws the attention of townspeople who know her only as The Marsh Girl. I loved this beautiful book for its deep immersion into the setting, the intimate knowledge of nature that envelopes you throughout the book, the lovely coming-of-age story for this young girl, and a deep look at loneliness, loss, and survival. Part murder mystery, part love story, part coming-of-age, a perfect book to end your summer on a beautiful note. #rabweeklyreview #whattoreadnext #naturestories #summerreading

That’s what the inquisitive me asks for all the time, the butterfly to open up to display its gorgeous top side, as also to display itself with folded wings while it goes about its nectar gathering routine.... I got to see both these views in my garden on the hibiscus blooms in the morning today 😄😄

Catopsilia pomona, the common emigrant or lemon emigrant, is a medium-sized pierid butterfly found in Asia and parts of Australia. The species gets its name from its habit of migration. ‘

Milky Way, Andromeda and a little Perseids meteor gently converge upon the landscape in Pinnacles National Park as seen in this single 60 sec exposure. The land is lit only by star light and little light pollution. It was a primeval feeling to imagine that this moment may have happened for countless times over many millenniums and now I became a tiny slice of the convergence, thanks to the direct experience. I also witnessed a few fireballs elsewhere in the sky and this image will just help me relive all the experience.

The rosehips and hawthorn berries are turning red early, after the long hot, dry spell. I love autumn, and I look forward to the turning of the season. To coincide with this change I had good news today, a change of my own!
When you type 'Drawn Into Nature' into the Google search bar now, my website is the first item on the page!
It's moved right to the top! This makes it so much easier for people to find me. Thank you everyone who has visited my website and blog, you've all helped me get here! It's really hard work starting a new site, and encouraging visitors, so I'm very grateful!🙂💚
