We have seen our garden gradually change over the last couple of weeks. There have been so many changes. Plans and ideas that we have spoken about all winter are becoming a reality. It is lovely to see everything come together.
The path and fruit cage is not the only area that we are changing. We are also creating a wildlife area in the vegetable patch. We now have a lovely Ladybird Tower. Ladybirds are important to have in the garden as they will make a meal out of any unwanted aphids. This home will not only be a haven for the ladybirds during the summer but will also give them a place to escape the cold over winter. This is just the first feature of our new wildlife garden. We are planning to create a bug hotel with scrap bits of wood drilled with holes for the bugs to use. We have found that our garden attracts a lot of bumble bees and butterflies during the summer and with our wildlife garden we are hoping to attract even more and do our bit for wildlife.
Here is how our garden has changed over the week...
|The first flower casualty of the year!|
The twins picked it for meand said "look, pretty flower for mummy!"
which was lovely but we have tried to explain that they are to make
the garden look pretty so we will see how many more remain intact!
As always I am sharing with the lovely Annie from Mammasaurus - Happy Birthday lovely lady! x
