Natural Connections

Modern life in Scotland is increasingly busy. The connections our ancestors had with nature and the land are being lost. As leisure time shrinks, or is filled with hi-tech experiences, opportunities to experience nature become fewer. And yet it is possible to connect with nature on a day to day basis. All around us, the great web of life continues to hold its shape, and nature continues its eternal cycles. Keep looking, listening, smelling, touching - and keep experiencing natural connections.

Teaching at Ayrshire Central this afternoon. Quite a lot of wildlife around the hospital grounds including Rabbits, Grey Squirrel and a group of very smart-looking juvenile Jackdaws begging for food from a parent.
Dead Badger on the road just south of Hunterston.
Hedgerows and roadsides thick with wild flowers. Noticed a large patch of Yellow Flag in a damp hollow just east of Largs. Also plenty of frothy-flowered Meadowsweet, especially around Lochwinnoch, and a patch of ?Ragged Robin on the south side of the dual carriageway, just east of Howwood.
Weather starting to improve after the torrential rain of the past few days. It has been so bad that our tap water has actually turned brown (presumably from the amount of peat being washed into the reservoirs by the rain) - the first time I've seen that happen in 15 years living in Paisley.
