Garden visitors

Postby LjayNature » Tue Jul 19, 2016 6:26 pm

All last week I have been fascinated by a guest that we have had living in our garden.
It was a female nursery web spider.
I popped out into the garden everyday to see what she was up to and how her spiderlings were getting on.

To read more about this fascinating spider check out my blog: https://ljaynature.wordpress.com/2016/0 ... eb-spider/

Bees are very important visitors to the garden and I do all I can to help them. I plant bee friendly flowers, garden organically and place little dishes of water out for them.
I love bees but its not till I started to really take a closer look that I realised there are so many different varieties and not many simple photo ID charts out there for someone just learning.
Check out my blog about the bees in my garden and see how many I counted on my lovely scented lavenders

Only when I stopped to take a closer look did I realise how many little creatures visit and live in my garden.
Check out my blog to hear about the colourful beetle and other tiny creatures I found on my mini beast adventure around the garden

I always wanted to know what was munching my fuchsia plant leaves, then one day I solved the mystery when I found elephant hawk moth larvae in my garden.
Find out about these wonderful creatures in my latest blog and I hope you get to spot them when you are out and about in nature.

I am frequently asked what I feed the hedgehogs in the garden so I decided to write a blog about it.

Check out my latest blog here about what our hedgehogs like to eat

We had our first proper harsh frost in Chester last night and when I woke the garden looked magical all covered in white sparkles.
Here is my latest blog about my day in a magical frosted garden

Signs of life are starting to appear in the garden. It's starting to feel like Spring already and it's only February.
I learnt recently that another word for February is "Sol Monath" which is an Old English name that describes the month perfectly.
To find out what "Sol Monath" means and what beautiful flowers are popping up around the garden, read my latest blog

Spring has sprung in the garden. Hedgehogs are waking, newts are returning to the pond and the lawn is covered in beautiful spring flowers.

Read more about what delights can be seen in the garden at the moment below :D
