bird box

Posted: 03/04/2013 at 21:19

It's about 1.8m up from the ground, north facing, very protected with a bambooo growing over the opening and a mature ceanotus arching over it. 

Crab apple in front which birds often hop onto.

Many blue tits, sparrows, robins and wrens in our garden.

It's a box with a hole, which I think is for blue tits...only put it up early March - any chance there'll be takers this year?

Verdun, that is brilliant

There was a young farmer of Leeds,

Who swallowed six packets of seeds,

It soon came to pass

He was covered in grass

And he couldn't sit down for the weeds.

 

Not technically a joke...

True geoff

Thanks Welshonion, but my bed won't have any grass in it whatsoever as the seed mis I'm going to use is 100% cornfield flowers and they are also all annuals, no perennials, so no need to mow.

Or do I need to mow annuals too?! If so, I stand corrected!
