The leaning tower of seeds(a)

My tiny front garden has always been a problem, not least because it's been paved over and used as a driveway. Parking in London is a problem, and so having our own driveway does make life much easier. I've planted bulbs and wildflowers in large troughs lining the driveway and finally moved the birdfeeder from the back garden to the front. I'd much rather have it in the back garden but now that it's been cat-proofed so that the cats are stuck in there, I didn't think it'd be fair to lure the birds in to be pounced on. So I've left it in the front garden and I'll just have to cross my fingers that nobody steals it. We have something of an infestation of what Emma the gardener calls "Two-legged rats" in my part of south London. Hopefully nobody will deprive the birds of their seeds by snaffling our feeder. 


  1. Your feeder looks like it's still in a good spot, being right by the window for easy viewing from inside. Fingers crossed that it stays put!

  2. Hi Margaret, thank you, that's what I was hoping! Our cats are back-garden-only cats so I was hoping that putting this by our window would create a sort of bird cinema for both them and us!
