I certainly do and I know I’m not the only one! So there was no hesitation whatsoever when Emma at A Nice Green Leaf said she was considering promoting the green leaves of our gardens. I just said let me know when! She just has – June 30th.
I am expecting a big turn out for this one. If you would like to join in on Monday just pop over to read Emma’s invitation and leave a comment there when you have posted. Then just return later to enjoy browsing the posts. Mm… now the fun part. I wonder how I will share mine. It’s good to share…
Sharing worked well in this feeder today although three was a crowd and the third juvenile blue tit just wasn’t allowed in!
This feeder is the one that was kindly loaned to me by Lyn a volunteer at the RSPB to help our single Mum feed the blue tit chicks in our camera Nestbox. Sadly she was too late in taking the live mini mealworms I put in the dish. I decided to leave it up for a while longer in the hope that juveniles from another nest may find it. I was delighted to see they have! I put peanuts in it for a change thinking they might take them away.
After I saw one young bird using it yesterday I decided to put the peanuts through my food processor to chop them up a bit just as I did for the juvenile hedgehogs last year. Why? Well, it was dropping the whole nut on the ground where the young bird wasn’t safe from predators like cats. So I made a simple mix of some sunflower hearts and lots of broken peanuts – boy has this been popular!
So now let’s see how popular the green leaves really are in our gardens!
