Over five years ago I cleared the patio of furniture and took away most plants, letting the area go a bit more wild. It has become a free passage for many species moving to and fro in these mountain forests.
Every day, from my writing desk, I regularly look out to see some wild creature ambling, flying, hopping, slithering by the windows. From time to time I step outside to read, edit an essay, or just stand and listen, watch, pay attention to living Nature, and wonder:
Who will visit next time?
Here’s a short list of wild neighbors I’ve seen going by:
Variety of Wasps
and the Wild Parade goes on and on …
You should put up a trail camera to record all your visitors.
We’ve considered that, Rob. Rather catch them with the eyes, and a camera now and then!
I love how you’ve created a welcoming environment for wildlife in your backyard! It’s beautiful to see so many different species thriving in their natural habitat.
Yes, thanks! It seems so “natural” to consider our natural neighbors and sharing the environment with them.
