Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.
It’s been an odd week and very busy with family stuff. I can’t believe that when you read this Christmas will be over. Our celebrations have obviously been different this year, and we’re didn’t go overboard, just having a simple meal. I think I actually much prefer this, as I think the real meaning of this time of year has been lost amongst the commercial aspects; trying to spend more than we have, and eat until we burst.
I hope everyone had a peaceful and restful Christmas

This just goes to prove that your garden doesn’t need to be a massive nature reserve to attract wildlife.
