It is still cold at the moment but at least it is dry. The water table has dropped and it gave me a chance to cut the grass. I don't do absolutely neat and tidy in my garden. To encourage wildlife you need areas of long grass and wild flowers. The grass is full of them, when they are out in late spring I will show you. The areas around the trees I let the grass grow long to shelter frogs, grass snakes or anything else that might seek refuge. I have kept the feeders well stocked this week, and the birds are using them all the time. There is not much insect life around due to this cold snap, so I will help them all I can.
One dove seemed to find a nice cosy spot. I have been keeping the log fire burning, so the chimney must have been nice and warm!!
