Exciting times in the Biodiversity Showcase Garden - the art works have started arriving. Yesterday a cow, 3 sheep and an owl (more about the later) and today we 'planted' the insects. Beautiful beaded creations made by artists at Streetwires - I am blown away by the colours and intricate detail. Amazing!
The colourful creatures have added instant magic & sparkle to the demonstration garden. Now there are eye-catching natural predators in the Natural pest control display, and a variety of animals living in the Create habitats display.
Ladybirds... (they eat up to 100 aphids a day).
And another natural predator - the robber fly
And of course spiders...
Orange-breasted sunbirds in the Attract Sunbirds display
White eyes, Witogies
And an asassin bug (how cool is that)
