Garden & Wildlife
This is a new section covering gardening jobs, projects and wildlife.
Please keep Feeding the Birds as many are now feeding hungry mouths demanding food! However, please do NOT put out Bread as there is no nutrition in this and may swell and lodge in a baby birds’ gullet choking them. Food should be Meal Worms, Niger and Sunflower Seeds, Fat Balls (take off nylon mesh which may catch in birds’ feet) and Peanuts in a container. Don’t forget the Water!
Monthly Project: Make sure there are gaps in your garden borders for Hedgehogs (5 inches²)
We have now finished the cladding on the outside and all the windows are in. So, on to the interior and the cladding inside this month.
I am hoping the studio will be finished before the courses start after Easter – Fingers Crossed! At least we will not at the mercy of the weather now.
Details of all the courses, including Art, Horticulture, Nature Talks and Walks, can be found on my website and Brochures are available for your friends who do not have computers, just let me know and I will send them one.
You can also find Testimonials for my art classes on my website as well as my Art gallery, a Map of the venue and an Enquiry/booking form if you have any questions or would like to note an interest or book one of my course.
