The image below is of my little garden in 2005.. I had just moved in.
It was a bit neglected... but just needed a bit of care and attention.
I soon had it tidied up and added some bedding plants to brighten it up.
The small bed on the right was sown with a mixture of wild flowers ideal for insects.
"so it said on the packet"
My first digital images of insects were taken that summer.
Prairie planting it said... and oh! did it grow.
Three feet high in no time... and it attracted lot's of insects into my garden.
Low on maintenance... it just required the occasional watering.
After seeing these old images again I don't know why I haven't done it since.
The bees love the Snap Dragons.
The Sweet Peas were looking good as were the rest of the bedding plants.
Not the sharpest images but record shots to see I had achieved my goal of attracting wildlife into my garden.
My little home is tiny... I have a minimalist lifestyle...but at least I have some outdoor space.
The birds are well fed ... and of course they also enjoy the insects.
