It’s the weekend, so I thought I’d look at all the animals I’ve featured so far in the stitch journal.
We’re well blessed with animals here, especially bird life. Our garden is 2.4 acres and we’ve planted it with fruiting trees and flowering shrubs in order to encourage wildlife. Animals here can choose from the fruits and nuts of leycesteria, ivy, cotoneaster, amelanchier, eleagnus, hazels, walnuts, pears, apples, cherries, wild cherries, plums, oaks, phlomis, elders, cherry laurels and huge rambling roses.
Animals that I see on a daily basis include rabbits, red squirrels and numerous birds, so over the course of the year there will doubtless be quite a few appearing.
