    Spotting wildflowers out walking

    Posted on November 24, 2018 by in Nature, Walks, Wildflowers

    Wildflowers and health walks I try and walk for my health every day. I only do about half an hour but it seems to be enough. Sometimes I do a bit of mindfulness at the same time. Most times I follow the same route past the cemetery heading out of Seaford, through a lime walk […]

    Mindful wildflower walks

    Posted on July 26, 2015 by in Nature, Walks, Wildflowers

    Mercy’s exercise blog with wildflowers My friend Mercy writes a running blog. She frequently stops during her exercise to photograph flowers and other points of interest. I particularly enjoyed this post in which she was continually distracted by the things around her. Having just started reading the book Mindfulness for Dummies, I can see similarities […]

    A wild flower for Mothers Day Primroses grow en masse along the country lanes of Sussex, especially on grassy roadside banks near Battle. Thirty years ago, back when it was OK to pick wildflowers, my husband used to pick a posy for his Mum to celebrate Mothers Day. I am writing this a week before […]

    A buttery yellow wildflower We have a community pond at the end of our road, and at this time of year its edges are a sea of yellow with celandine flowers. They seem to love the damp conditions, and the shade provided by a small stand of trees edging the footpath. The buttery yellow blooms, […]

    Pink pincushions of wildflowers Living near the seaside, I see a lot of sea pinks aka thrift. The cushions of foliage look very soft and comfy, and the compound flowers always seem so profuse. The wildflowers grow happily in the chalk cliffs at Seaford, unaffected by the strong winds and sea salt. Read more about […]
