Valentine Seed Heart for Birds
Don't you love it when birds visit your garden? I do!
At our former house we had a very small garden, but lots of birds, bats and bees, but although we have a much larger garden at our new house now, there isn't a single tree in it. Lots of bushes that attract bees and other insects, but not one tree for birds to take shelter.
A couple of weeks ago I asked a landscaper to design a garden for us and when she asked me about must haves, I asked for a couple of trees: a couple of fruit trees for a small orchard, two or tree pollard willows (my favorite tree!) and a couple of trees to effectuate more privacy.
Last week the landscaper came with her design and I absolutely love it. It's green and lush, it gives a lot of privacy, it has enough places for relaxing alone and with friends, and the best: I think it has lots of possibilities for birds, insects and small animals like hedgehogs to find food and shelter.
I think we will start building the garden in springtime, so for now I hope to attract birds by feeding them. For that purpose I made this seeds heart. I could have chosen every form, but since it's almost Valentines Day, I found a heart the right choice!
