|1 June - Ox-eye daisy - Crowborough.|
This little project nearly fell on the first day because I expected to get home in time to create something. Instead due to a timetable meltdown, I had to content myself with some Ox-eye daisies at Crowborough.
|3rd June - Ashdown Forest.|
|7 June - Uckfield garden - Insects on Ceonothus|
|5 June - The Vapourer Caterpillar who hitched a ride on my hat.|
|16 June - Sussex Flag and Swifts|
Saturday, the 16th of June was Sussex Day, so I painted the Sussex Flag that flew above our Civic Centre along with some of the Swifts that frequent the area.
|17 June - Meadow Thistle - Chailey Common|
Last September, I visited Chailey Common with the Sussex Biological Recording Group. One of the aims of the visit was to check on the progress of Marsh Thistles. At the time, there were plenty of rosettes but, of course, the flowers were long gone. I decided to pay them a visit and was delighted to find some in flower and being visited by Large Skipper butterflies and bees. I could hear the Longhorn Cattle used for conservation grazing mooing in the distance.
|22 June - Moon peeping through Honeysuckle|
When I got back on the evening of June the 22nd, the scent of honeysuckle was already heavy in the air and the moon was rising in the Cobalt blue sky.
|23 June - Fallow doe and fawn at Ashdown Park Hotel|
|30 June - Hempstead Meadow Nature Reserve|
|19 June - After all that walking I needed some pud!|
There are several very talented local wildlife artists who exhibit at Uckfield events so keep a look out for local shows and, if you get a chance, pay a visit.
