Wildlife Welcome

I like to try and live in harmony with nature. Even if I was able to work hard getting my garden all perfect and neat, I don’t think I would want to. What I really want is a bit of the wild countryside that’s easier to access being right outside my door. I want to find creatures living on my plants, I want to see leaves with holes in as I know something has been enjoying them, I want wildlife to feel welcome. Part of it, I’m sure, is down the inability to do more, so I just decide this is what I wanted anyway. But mostly, I cherish the signs of the natural world feeling comfortable to call my garden their home.

A small bee, which I can’t identify. Possibly some kind of mason bee or mining bee. Anyway he was happy with all the dandelions in my garden
Giving this Thistle Tortoise Beetle couple their privacy
Drinker moth caterpillar lurking in the undergrowth
14-spot Ladybird continuing about its business, undisturbed by me peeking in

Brave spider who didn’t scuttle away like the others
