Red Kites - Wednesday 22nd April

Another day - another photo from my garden...

***Photos at the bottom of the blog***

I have decided to show you a living thing that I see from my garden each day as I am probably appreciating the things around me more than ever due to being here all of the time. 

Thought of the day/your plan for today?

What have you appreciated more or noticed more since you have been home for the last 33 days?

Alternative time units - almost 3 million seconds...that is a lot of thoughts!

33 days can be converted to one of these units:

  • 2,851,200 seconds
  • 47,520 minutes
  • 792 hours
  • 33 days
  • 4 weeks and 5 days

I will share the photos that I receive on email on one of the daily blogs. Today you get to see Erin's artwork and Isla's sunflower!

Erin's sheep
Erin's rabbit
Erin's cute dog
Isla's growing sunflower that had to be re-potted!

    Hi Erin, I am glad you are pleased with them and you’re right - Isla’s sunflower is so tall! What has she been feeding it?! I need some!

    Hello Sophie! It is lovely to hear from you and I am glad you enjoying all of the family time (say hello to them from me). Me too - Ellie and I are doing our own kind of painting: I will show photos tomorrow!

    Hi Mr G, in the easter holidays I have been planting vegetable and flower seeds, and they have already began to sprout. In my new house I have a large balcony which we are filling with lots of plants and flowers. I have also been going on long walks through a canal and this week I have found a swing which can swing you very high above a rushing stream! I have also been playing online with my friends and making tiktoks also watching my friend's tiktoks too. I have been doing lots of dance classes on zoom since that my dance show was cancelled. We have also been making lots of rainbow pictures for the nhs and clapping every thursday. I have really missed being able to talk to my friends at school 😊🌈

    Hi Mr Grinham In the 33 days we have been at home, I have definitely noticed and appreciated the nature more: blossom, flowers, grass, birds, blue skies and clean air. Because we can only go out once a day, I appreciate and make the most of my time out by going on bike rides, walks and visiting streams. I also appreciate the NHS and all the work they're doing to help us all. From Freya

    Hi Mr.G and Red Kites! I am getting the hang of the daily routine and it seems to be getting a bit easier. Hope everyone is having a good day

    Hi Emelia! Your photos look amazing - thank you for sending them to me. If you would like me to add them to the blog tomorrow then let me know :) It is a shame that the dance show was cancelled but I bet the zoom classes are working well and keeping your dance moves sharp! I’m glad to it made a rainbow and clapping for the incredible people who work for NHS. Mr G

    Hello Freya, I completely agree - we have a blossom tree in our garden and it seems to be continuously falling which looks like confetti from a wedding! The clean air is interesting as in some countries (and large cities) you can see a lot further on the horizon now because there isn't as much air pollution. Greta Thunberg will be pleased about that at least. Everyone at the NHS and many other workers are doing a remarkable job. My daughter made a poster for the people who collect our bins to say thank you too. Mr G

    Hi Isla! I am glad it seems to be getting easier. A good day here - it was very hot on our walk around Hook though!

    Thanks Mr G, yes I'd like that. Emelia.
