About me:Hi Im higgy and live in North Somerset wife my wife and 6yr old daughter My passion for gardening first started with the purchase of our first house 20 years ago and the construction of a fishkoi pond Once I started landscaping and planting outside of this pond there really was no stopping me Three years ago we moved to a house with a reasonable size garden 140feet x 40ish feet and part ownership of a field at the bottom The garden was a blank canvas other than a tangle of brambles and weeds I have set out to turn it into an attractive child and wildlife friendly garden I try to use as many recycled materials as I can in the garden and have collected all manner of bricks rocks wood and other items and turned them into worthwhile landscaping projects I am keeping a photographic and written record of these projects and the garden as it evolves This year we were extremely lucky to be contacted by the BBC who came and filmed in the garden for their SPRINGWATCH SPECIAL This was a fantastic experience and it was fantastic that the garden should be recognised for the fantastic wildlife that now visits it If you are interested in to find out more about the garden and our day filming with the BBC then visit my garden project blog- higgysgardenprojectblogspotcom My other interests are North Somerset wildlife and Wildlife photography Im extremely fortunate to have this open countryside and wildlife at the bottom of my garden so really can enjoy all my interests from my home however I now atch wildlife and take pictures all over my local part of North Somerset and again please do visit my website to see some of my pictures and see what North Somerset has to offer wwwnorthsomersetwildlifeandnaturephotographycom Best regards Higgy
