Nature journaling has never been on my to do list or even radar but it’s good to read the benefits you and others have derived from trying it (without actually having to do it myself!)

It’s oh so quiet … You can almost hear the hush of the forest from your beautiful photographs.

Following on from your anecdote of paintbrushes but no teaspoons, were I ever feeling inspired to paint (so help me, God!) can I (using reverse logic) use a teaspoon to paint with? There are no paintbrushes in my world.

If using a teaspoon to paint brings you joy, then yes, go for it! You could start a trend! πŸ˜‚πŸ’œ

So good to take time to observe. Easy to rush by and not see what beauty surrounds us.

Thank you Jill, time in the woods and forest at the weekend helped me find solace and some much needed time out. πŸ™

Beautiful photos and thoughtful words. Getting out into nature in Autumn is my favourite thing to do but nature journalling is new to me... I am not much inclined towards drawing or painting but perhaps a few printed photos stuck in book might encourage me to write a bit about being outside... or perhaps I should just doodle and see what happens...πŸ€”

Loved watching you create your rose hip still life on your YouTube channel - well worth a lookπŸ’—.

Just doodling and see what happens sounds like a good idea, which is what nature journaling is all about. Thank you for taking a look at my latest video. πŸ’œ
