#30dayswild Day 29 Leavy Green Road

Leavy green Road is just opposite University tram stop. At the end nearest tram stop there is the old Henderson factory.

Past that there is flower beds / sitting errors decorated with bottles.

Further down in front of the diamond there is the perriguine falcon Allen. Allen was created in honour of opening of the opening of Sheffield Ikea and until recently resided in front of the train station. He is made entirely of Allen keys.

Whose Space is it Anyway? IKEA Everyday Wonderful signs.

Inside the diamond is Amy Johnson moth.

Hull moths

The church next to the diamond, St George’s is the chosen nesting site of Sheffield perriguines.

Lunch time daisy chain making. The daisy stalks were too thin to puncture holes in, so had to knot them together.  I really needed someone to it on to my wrist. I could not get it around my waist before had to get back to my desk, instead wore wrapped round my necklace untill it fell off at some point.

#30Dayswild Day 30

I have seen dawn and sunset on separate days. Friday night in Sheffield there was an amazing orange moon.

The challenge has inspired some meals; homegrown rhubarb compote and Junk food market concoctions.

I have attempted to make a daisy chain, gardened and walked.

Seeing a variety of plants and several animals, the best being a Spanish peacock.

It was cold and not as dark as I had expected at what google stated was sunrise – 3.44am. Interesting how WiFi seemed really slow in the middle of the night.

#30dayswild: Day 19 Junkfood project market and meal

The Junkfood project takes food that has gone past it’s display to, date and ‘sells it’. You have to queue and is quite noisy, with things being bashed about. Whilst I was queuing there was bread where queuing. Then get to fruit and vegetables and given basket and have to ask for what want. Then there were flowers and foods in chiller / fridge/ freezer. Everyone can only fill one basket. You pay £1 for this service plus pay as feel for the food. I felt a bit guilty being there like other people, there deserved the food more but, guess you can even this up by donating more to keep project going.

I got some beautiful sunflowers originally from Marks and Spencer’s. Some plain pancakes, scotch pancakes, couple of sachets Morrison’s sauces, pack of mince, strawberries, mushrooms and beansprouts. I also got these viola flower which are intended to be a decorative thing; I’m not surprised they were not sold in the shop, I would not have bought.

I made a couple of unusual meals. I fried onions I already had with the mince, beansprouts and mushrooms then split into two. I did one half with coconut and lime sauce and the other with chilli. I added pasta. I ate the coconut and lime today and decorated with violas as the mixture was quite grey, they did actually make it look better. I’m taking the chilli for lunch tomorrow.

It was fun, being inventive and with the ingredients. To add to the randomness after the market I bought strawberry angel delight and sauce. I wrapped the angel delight and strawberries in pancakes. I meant to put strawberry sauce in too, but forgot until I had wrapped, so I used that to decorate.

About the prompt

I have chosen wildlife as I’m following the Wildlife trust 30days wild challenge.

As this is an example, not an entry hopefully it is acceptable that I have based mine on a sweater shirt I used to have, which I think read:

A badger is so bashful,

He likes to wear a mask,

Across his eyes

My attempt

Shy badger wears mask across eyes.
