…Tuppence a bag… (now see if that lovely Mary Poppins song doesn’t get lodged in your head).
It’s officially autumn. Crisp air greets us in the morning, the leaves are blazing red and orange, and the koi are looking a little sluggish in their pond. It’s also time to be thinking about feeding the birds during the winter ahead. The Canadian Wildlife Federation’s excellent website, Wild About Gardening, has a wealth of resources to help you attract wildlife to your garden. And it’s not just about birdseed and squirrel-repellent feeders, either. There’s advice on meeting the needs of bats, bees, and birds through planting, providing a water source, shelter, a pesticide-free space, and just basically meeting the needs of wildlife.
