Dear Indigenous Enthusiast,
I am so excited about how well my Christmas tree for the birds has worked out.
The Masked Weavers and Red Bishops are so busy in the tree and they look like extra colourful decorations in it.
Just to add to my pleasure the Peltophorum Africanum (African Wattle) which I chose for a Christmas tree is starting to bloom. It is going to look so gorgeous with its spikes of golden flowers.
I had to change the Nuxia Floribunda for the Peltophorum as the branches of the Nuxia were too soft to hold the decorations and the birds.
The beaded decorations I designed and had especially made to use as bird feeders are a hit with both the birds and my customers.
As you can see from the pictures there are so many Red bishops that all the food I have in the tree is not enough - they have to steal from everywhere else.
They are even stealing from the seed bells I am making for the
Children's Christmas Gift.
There will be a little gift of a seed bell that can be hung in a tree to feed the birds for Christmas as well as a few sweets for the children.
So bring the children along to enjoy the nursery, the garden walk and to collect their Christmas gift.
I thought I would remind you about the children's activity we have on for the holidays.
Children's Interactive Garden Walk
There is so much to share with children in the garden and nursery, and this is all about having great fun doing so.
Gift is a natural with the children, and he will take them on a walk which will include looking for insects in the beastie boxes, making mud cakes, looking for life in the compost heap and much more.
