A Rusland Valley exploration, further small adventures, a favourite flower in bloom and how we're feeling about substack notes...
We were out for a walk at the weekend in the woods not far from us and we were delighted to see swathes of wood anemones. I’ve always loved their delicate white flowers and the serrated leaves remind me of parsley (but I’m aware of their toxicity). Another lovely post
I knew about Substack venturing into the world of short note format but haven’t yet dipped my toes in. One can only hope that it could be a more creative and less toxic alternative to Twitter et al 🤔 if I ever find time to check it out 😂
Thank you for the weekend adventure notes and please don’t stop! It’s like therapy for the soul and mind🙏💚
I was very excited to see yellowhammers on my walk this morning. I’m not sure I’ve seen them before, or if I have it was back when I wasn’t sure what I was seeing! Yes I’m also cautious about Notes as I came to Substack to escape social media. But to me it feels friendlier, safer and less demanding (ad-free) than social media so I’m ok with it so far! I’ve found some great new writers to follow through it.
Yes to your feelings about Notes: it feels contrary to what I like about Substack (reading things that are more than a few hundred characters; connection over consumption). I’ll not be checking it a lot I think (the few times I did I ran away overwhelmed) though I’ll probably experiment with sharing my own posts on Notes a couple of times. Have a good weekend (and do continue with the weekend updates, I love reading your adventures) ✨
