Many creatures make this corner of my garden their home, like countless lizards, a few frogs, field mice, and a very camera-shy small garden snake. This is the only part of the garden that my dog Rosie won't go into. She is no fool!!!
I believe that no mater the size of our gardens, it is important to allow a small section to grow wild and undisturbed with minimal impact from the gardener. Allowing all the creatures to coexist and inhabit these bits of eco-systems will, in the long run, benefit the garden, improve its over-all health, and add to its appeal. Besides, it is the environmentally right thing to do!
