My wildlife garden is not a large garden, but it contains a surprising variety of
plants and wildlife. Some of the plants were here when we arrived, some I planted,
some just appeared and others have been introduced by the wildlife – here I must
thank the squirrels who buried hazel nuts and walnuts.
In 2010, I photographed each plant as it flowered or in the case of non-flowering
plants, when they made an attractive picture. I have not removed any “weeds” until
they have been photographed, named and recorded and it’s amazing how many are attractive

some of the wildlife that we have been able to capture on camera.
I hope you enjoy browsing my website and if you can correct any names that are wrong,
please email me.
