I have a wildlife friendly garden and I encourage all birds, bees, butterflies, frogs etc into it. Today I saw a very nervous Great Spotted Woodpecker on one of my nut feeders. He never seems to stay for long. Later on I went into my shed and found the remains of a rabbit that my big white cat had left for me. At least it wasn’t a bird. The birds have just stated on my hugh holly tree. There is never any berries left for Christmas.Just after lunch today we had a chap knocking at the door asking for the holly to make wreaths, but my husband said no, they are for the birds.
i would just love this prize love my garden and the many birds that visit it
I have my fingers crossed I will be Lucky!
I have my fingers crossed hoping I will win the tickets!

Love watching the wildlife coming into the garden to forage. Mrs Blackbird keeping another Mrs Blackbird off “her patch” quite territorial aren’t they!
I am from Malta, 4years ago we moved to England with my family and lived at my mother in law’s. We have our own house now and i finally have a garden of my own. I have put as many nectar flowering plants as i could fit in to attract insects and so attract birds. I also feed them wild birdseed, mealworms and fatballs. They are certainly enjoying my garden as i refill their food twice a day! I love my garden its my one true love

In your April 28th Issue Kris suggests plants to attract wildlife in the garden and called Acer Campestris a small tree- I planted 4 in 1980 and they are over 40 feet tall I really could not recommend them except in a very large garden. I can supply a photo if you like.
my first great-grandchild is due on 25/5/12. If I can’t make Chelsea (which has been a dream of mine for many years) then I can plant a “little Chelsea” for the new arrival.
It would be wonderful to visit the Chelsea Flower Show and see the magnificent gardens.
A visit to RHS Chelsea would be lovely.
The ultimate in garden shows
