All gardens are welcome in this sub-forum John, no matter what county theyíre in so itís nice to see yours here, plus itís not about listing what you see, thatís a purely personal thing, itís all about using it for your own benefit as you wish during these testing times†smile

Well im not listing as such but will post some Highlights in the grim time ,we have a garden probably 25 yards by 25 yards in central Warrington , no fields ,just houses surrounding us ,close to the Halliwell Jones Stadium, wishing now we had moved to St Helens Road Leigh many years ago ,but who would ever have predicted this. I am Stir Crazy already but the garden helps ,I have had in the past flyover Hen Harrier, Hobby, Osprey, Peregrine , etc etc ,so see if I see owt in the next few weeks heres a picture of the garden, which Sue does most of the work in except I have my own small area down the side were I grow Cooking Herbs ,most of the plants if not all are wildlife related,we have a pond with Tadpoles at the moment.†
