had four wood pigeons squabbling on the shed roof this morning ,all over the bird seed,it was funny to watch as they slid off the roof due to the ice,and the fox I met at the front door looking for offerings,looked healthy and with cubs due in spring,she is a darling but runs the risk of humans in cars each night.

Advice needed.

the best thing ,since you like gardening parents and grandparents is to teach the children your self,its a pleasure to share your knowledge with children teaching them about the flowers and veg alongside teaching about wildlife.you  will gain and so will your children,don't leave it to others and miss out.Getting them to help  water ,sow,dig,and Identify plants.
