Garden Lovers

With Spring just around the corner, we hope, I thought you might like to see an idea I saw at a flower show, it's a hotel for bugs much needed in any garden, all you need are a few pallets which you can normally get for nothing, air bricks, cardboard tubes, logs drilled with holes, infact anything that will hide a creepy crawlie, dried stems are also good as is moss. It needs to be kept dry so a few roof tiles go on the top to finish it off, this could be the most expensive part unless you have a few spare, if you want to do a really good job
 reclamation yards always have them. I am going to start one myself this year I will let you know how I get on.


Now how much can I charge for a Des Res within flying distance of the sea :)

Have a good Weekend evryone

Never seen anything like that. Interesting! So the idea is they live in the hotel instead of your garden?
Hope you have a most lovely day!

You learn something new everyday :]
Very neat! I may have to try one too.
I did enjoy the yummie cupcakes, my hips not so much though.

That looks rather a good idea - I know we have some blocks and tiles in a heap behind the shed - am wondering if they already occupied or whether I could make some special with them??
