Jardin pour la biodiversité
Jardin pour les oiseaux
I’ve always worked on my garden, expanding it and trying to find plants that will be successful in it. (It is quite shady and seems to have become more so over the years. I’d love to have lots of dahlias and other showy cutting flowers but they just won’t bloom due to lack of sun.) I started feeding the birds five years ago after giving a bird feeder to my sister-in-law as a housewarming gift. Our house backs onto the extended green space that includes Meadowbrook Golf Course and continues east barely interrupted to Decarie via the Falaise St-Jacques. I want to support the wildlife that’s around me by creating a safe and nurturing space (though not feeding any animals but birds). Space for Life and many other organizations promote the idea of helping pollinators and birds and I think I’m in a great location to help. I love watching the birds and animals. There’s never a dull moment. That’s why I call my garden A Busy Place. And it’s nice to believe this space may be helping these creatures in the face of all the challenges that our expanding built-up world throws at them.
