My Gardens Wildlife.

When we first moved to the house, the one place I thought I wouldn't spend much time in due to the time of year actually become my safe haven, a place to escape too - my garden. Scrubbing and cleaning down a patio chair that had been left in the garden by the previous tenants, I often found myself just sat there watching the tree branches sway and move with the wind.

As the season started to change with the new year, I witnessed the trees at the bottom of my garden starting to bloom, gone were the bare branches that stood just a few months before, and instead stood branches with leaves, full of leaves, a beautiful change in the season that I got to witness for the first time after living in a flat for many years.

My priority right now is the house, I've been here for nearly six months now, and only have two rooms done, my front room and kitchen, everything is so expensive and with one expense being waved goodbye too, another one soon creeps up on you from somewhere! As soon as I pay off one thing, another bill arrives for something else, so I'm stuck in what seems like a never ending cycle!

Once the house is all done, the garden will be the next place to be sorted - properly sorted! For now, it's just a matter of cutting the grass on a regular basis and enjoying the wildlife that visits our garden on a daily basis. Before, I don't know if it was where I was of a younger age, but I'd take no interest in flowers, birds or tree's, but now I have a garden myself, I'm finding myself being more interested in the wildlife that either lives in my garden, or visits my garden.

Just after Christmas, I took the photo above of a red leaf cluster, it was the only red leaves in site between mine and my next door gardens wire fence separator, I never thought I'd see the day that I got excited and happy over a leaf, so happy I had to run inside to get the camera!

I'm yet to plant any flowers myself, to be honest I wouldn't know where to even start, I wouldn't know what compost to use or anything, I'm clueless to all of that after living in a flat for so long! However I do have wild flowers that seem to be growing in the most randomest of places! Once the house is done, I hope to have a garden of bloomed flowers, all pretty and bright!

Wild flowers aren't the only common appearance in my garden, I also get a lot of wild birds flying down for a visit! I managed to pick up a pre-used bird house from my local emporium unit for a few pounds last week and I've made a small order with Vine House Farm for wild bird food to see if I can entice the birds for long enough for me to get camera happy!

I've got big plans for this garden, and can't wait to see the transformation of it all within a few years! I know Rome wasn't built in a day, and I know I need to be patient and keep working, but for now it's okay to imagine things isn't it?

Until next time,
Jada x
