Appreciate wildlife

Posted by on October 12, 2017

Don’t be so quick to tidy up. The remains of the summer and fall garden give shelter, food and cover for wildlife, while also adding winter interest to garden beds.

Pictured here is a praying mantis egg case I found one year while cutting back my garden. It was at this point I learned to slow down my fall pruning until the spring, when the leaves were cleared away and overwintering wildlife was easier to see.
