Day 12: Read a Wild Book #30DaysWild

The good thing about having friends and family who are interested in all things wild is they have a lot of books! Since one of the 30 Days Wild prompts encourages me to read a wild book, I thought one about trees seemed pretty apt considering I’ve a mini woodland going on in the gardens!

Rik’s mum passed this on to me yesterday whilst admiring her beautiful garden and her new addition, the garden swing, her sons bought for her birthday.

So, go on, grab a wild book and learn something new today.

    1. Thank you, they were left by the owners who lived here originally. There’s a whole set! So thought I’d get them out for special occasions.
