TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_19 Day 19 – Poppies 

I have been driving past this lovely patch of wildflowers and its bright red poppies every day but today I stopped quickly to photograph them as they’ve been reminding me of 2016’s Poppies:Wave hosted by Lincoln Castle.

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_20Day 20 – Tickle someone with a feather

Today I discovered that doing the school run on the bus isn’t my first choice when there’s an hour and a half to wait for the next service.

Fortunately the bus stop was next to a leafy island and Luke and Willow entertained themselves whilst waiting by tickling each other with feathers and then weaving them into a pine cone to make an art.  Unfortunately the car has to go back to the garage again another day soon…
