Day 146 of 365 Days Wild was a day of celebration. Not only was it my birthday, it was also my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. To make the day even better, my nephew – their grandson – has also just announced his engagement. Because of the coronavirus, this years celebration ended up being far more muted than we had planned. We’re under Tier 2 restrictions so are unable to interact indoors and can only meet with a group of 6 outdoors. We made the most with what we are permitted, however, and myself and my parents met up with my sister, my nephew and his fiance, for a walk along the Viking Way. Unlike my usual walks, where I’m constantly taking photographs, this time I was much too busy chatting to do so. I did, however, snap a couple of views over a field filled with yellow (golden!) flowers. Considering the time of year, I expect this is probably mustard being grown as a green manure, but it was a nice sight on a golden anniversary.
Mainly, there were just lots of bunches of flowers. My dad, always a secret romantic, bought my mum (Millie Thom) a gorgeous big bouquet of red roses.
My uncle sent through a bunch of yellow (golden) roses.
There were also flowers off my nephew.
And my youngest brother sent through an orchid.
It wasn’t just flowers, though. My parents received two separate bottles of champagne, several boxes of chocolates, and a sundial from myself and my sister.
I received a new book, The Hedgerow Apothecary by Christine Iverson, from my sister and a hoodie from a company called Tentree off my brother. This company plants trees for every item bought. I can now track the ten trees that will be planted for my hoodie!
They know me so well!
That’s all for today! See you again tomorrow.
