  • Finally after months of waiting and keeping our eyes on the leaves we spotted a few months ago the Bee Orchids (Ophrys apifera) have emerged and WHAT A YEAR!!! 🤩
.
We have spotted them in more areas than previous years and when counting them we saw close to 50! 😁
.
One fascinating fact about Bee Orchids is that the brown/yellow area in the centre looks like the Queen of a European Bee which isn’t found in the UK. However this flower has the ability to self pollinate and this allows it to return year on year and multiply in the meadows 🐝

  • It’s time to ring the Kestrels! Our local birder who installed the kestrel box 3 years ago came along to do so but we needed a few pairs of hands for these beauties 🐣
.
Out of the 6 eggs 5 of the chicks have thrived and the ringing of them will help us be able to track their travels through life when other keen birders spot their rings and track them back to beginning life at @clandonwood 🌾
.
Their downy feathers will soon malt away to reveal their mature feathers and they will soon be out in the meadows with Mum and Dad who will teach them hunt. We’re all so proud at @clandonwood that we have created a safe space for life to continue for all species and thank you to all the families for respecting the meadows and wildlife 😊

  • The Sainfoin (Onobrychis) flower is one of the more beautiful seen in the meadows at the moment with its long flowering head in an eye catching pink 🌸
.
This flower is a favourite of many animals being pollinated by Bees and one of the favourite grazing plants of cattle and sheep. Roughly translated Sainfoin mean ‘good hay’ as it has many benefits for grazing livestock. So when this is bailed up at the end of Summer it will be enjoyed by Eddie and his pals back at his home 🐝🐑🐄 🐴

  • 昨日、夫の従姉妹と彼女のお嬢さんに連れられて、レスターの田園地帯にある「The Willows Natural Burial Ground」という樹木墓地に夫の遺灰を無事に埋葬してきました✨
.
ごく普通の墓地は、ちょっと違和感もあったし値段もかなりしたので、「埋葬は無理か・・・?」と諦めかけたところで目に飛び込んできた「樹木葬」という言葉・・・。
そしてそれを頼りにいろいろ検索して出会ったのが、この樹木墓地。
.
ホームページの印象も良く、場所も良く、問い合わせのメールには丁寧&迅速な対応をしてくれたので、「ここだ!!」とピーンときました😊
.
.
現地に実際に行ってみて、自分の直感が正しかったことを確認✨
一緒に来てくれた二人も「夫にピッタリ💕」と喜んでくれました。
.
植えてもらう木も希望を伝え(植樹は秋になるとのこと)、野ばらの苗は近日中に植えてくれるそうで、今日は遺灰の埋葬だけしてきました。
(ちなみに散灰は、最近は環境汚染に繋がる傾向があらわれてきたので行わなくなってきた・・・そうです。)
.
墓碑のようなものに書き込むメッセージは、私が考えたもの・・・。
これは即席で作ってくれた見本で、ちゃんとした石に同じメッセージを刻んだものは完成までに数週間かかるとのこと。
.
.
私は翌日(つまり今日のこと)にはイギリスを発ってしまうので、完成品は後日写真を送信してくれることになり、楽しみだわ~💕
.
これで私のとりあえずの使命は完了!!!
そして「将来イギリスを訪れる理由」もでき、大満足です😊✨
.
今、ロンドンのヒースロー空港。
フランクフルト経由で日本に帰り、永住です😊

Yesterday was the day that I have finally brought my husband to the place to rest!!!
.
I have found "The Willows Natural Burial Ground" in Leicestershire online, and fell in love with this place by the impression of their website.
.
The location is good, and the owner & people of the place have been very nice since my first contact.
.
It was much better place than I expected, and couldn't have been more perfect for my husband✨
.
A tree will be planted on his plot in fall, but wild roses will be also planed soon.
.
I have written the scripts for the plaque, and it will be professionally engraved on slate in a few weeks. (The photo is just a sample of the plaque.)
.
.
The owner told me that he will keep me updated about my husband's plot since I can't come back to check any changes often. .
I am so glad that it has been done. 
I feel like I have accomplished another thing today, and feel good about it.
.
Thanks to my husband's relatives for their support, generosity, and love.  I couldn't have done this without them💕
.
I have now another good excuse to come back to visit this beautiful country😊
.
Now, my husband is back, and I am going home too!

  • Imagine a beautiful Ontario Meadow. In the summer, the butterflies and bees fly among the wildflowers. In the winter, the snow brings calm. This could be your final resting place, and the very act of you being there helps restore nature and protect the land forever. #deadsimple

  • On Sunday the 26th May between 10:30am and 1pm we have our Tea, Cake and Company ☕️ This occasion is open to everybody.

These drop in days offer a chance to be among others who share the experience of loss.

Talking can help - knowing others who have experienced something similar is a relief.

It is a safe place where death is not a taboo subject. It is not about offering professional bereavement support - but about kindness, consideration and company.

No need to book in, just drop in.
