Today’s finds 20.01.2021 – Allotmenting and Wasp Nest Discoveries!

Hello, I hope you all enjoyed the session on snowdrops this morning 🙂

Rather than including finds of the day I’m going to start including weekly finds – as with home school commitments I’m not always getting out as planned on a Wednesday.

I have adapted my outings to include time at my allotment over the weekends to have a break from screens and my home environment. Last weekend I took an old un-inhabited wasps nest to the plot that a friend gifted me to look at in more detail. The colours and structure were amazing, scroll down for pics of the allotment and the wasps nest. The amazing thing is that the wasps chew on bark and then spit it out to make the paper – just imagine all the plants from the colours that you can see. There were lines of red and iridescent blue! Do let me know what you have been up to too!

Best wishes,
