Garden beauty galore!

Yesterday I visited Elford Hall Garden with my local Wildlife Trust Group (The Lichfield Wildlife Trust). Firstly we were given an introduction about the place then we went on a walk round. I managed to get lots of lovely photos of the beautiful flowers, sights and wildlife here. The sight was nothing less then a wildlife haven, with ancient trees, bug hotels, a wide variety of plants, the River Tame which goes past and some woodland areas. It was a wonderful place to walk around and I’m looking forward to going again. For more information about Elford Hall Garden here’s the website – http://www.elfordhallgarden.org.uk/

Here are some photos that I took.

Book review – The Birds at the Bottom of the Garden by Carl Mynott.

This is the first review that I’ve ever done, and what a lovely book to start with. The book is called ‘The Birds at the Bottom of the Garden’ and it is mainly targeted at pre-school children although I love the book myself and I’m 15.

It goes through ten common garden birds which you could find in your garden. Also at the end of the book it has a short bird spotting guide to encourage young people to venture out and look for birds in their own gardens.

The book is written in rhyming verses and includes lots of lovely illustrations which make it even more special!
