i am so jealous, i have 2 small patios and the rest is all horrible stones with a patch or bark covered mud soon to be covered by a shed and run for the bunnies.
i have plenty of pots and things but im guessig because i have no bushed trees or shrubs for the birds to take cover in if they feel insuafe they avoid the food i put out all together.
ive seen one magpie attemtping to steal marbles from a hideous garden ornament the previous owners left and 2 pidgeons fighting to the point where one of them had to be caught and killed as it was flapping around and bleeding all over my garden!!
i dont want a tree but am hoping once the bunnies move from there current plac eto there new spot i can put a bench, trellis over it and pots either side with some sort of tree climber shrub in it and a few feeders on the wall.
the in laws have gorgeous wildlife in their garden including all sorts of birds squirrels and pond life and a few mice that the dog attempts to catch! an hoping to get things going so that i can feed the birds over the winter and watch from my kitchen window.
last year my mum had a blackbird nest in next doors 'jungle' of a garden and we could see it really close and hear the babies. was lovely to watch and we now put feeders out attached to the jungle that encrouches on our garden to encourage them even more.
