Birch Tree for the Garden
After our pretty harsh winter, everything in the garden is tentatively poking its head out to see if Spring really has arrived. It’s nice to see everything coming back to life and despite the weather most things seem to have made it through.
All the activity prompted us to get the garden furniture out of the shed and even buy a new bench from the garden centre. We’ve been meaning to get some seating in the garden but had just never got around to it, but now its there and ready to be sat on once things warm up a bit.
We also bought a Silver Birch tree for the bottom of the garden. We don’t know how well it will stand up to the wind here but I want to make the bottom of the garden a little more ‘wooded’ so thought it was worth a try. Hopefully another species of tree will attract more wildlife and increase the number of moth species I manage to trap too.
Of course, all of this furniture and the extra tree are just create more obstacles that will make mowing the lawn more difficult but I guess that’s a small price to pay.
