Hello, my name is Catherine and I’m a topiary addict. After planting our six foot topiary rabbit for the children, I just keep thinking of different things in our garden that should, if possible, be made of living materials. We really want to make our smallholding a haven for wildlife and one of the easiest ways to do that is to ensure we have lots of bird feeders. We’ve got them hanging all over the place, especially where we can see the birds from the windows and there is one particular corner of the garden that we sit and look at in the evenings that I thought could use some extra bird allure. So we now have a lovely little topiary bird feeder. I hung one of our homemade bird feeders in it yesterday expecting it to take a while for the birds to find it (and then expecting them to be reluctant to use it at first as it’s so low) but to my surprise they’d eaten the whole thing by this morning! Our oldest is thrilled – we make homemade feeders once a week or so and he’s always so proud when the birds can be seen enjoying the fruits of his labours.
