This article is fun, and has some maybe informative links. It's cool that the writer has moved toward more wildlife advocacy, and the comments and pictures are informative.

I don't see those gardens as being especially great examples of how beautiful a wildlife garden can be -- maybe the photographer wasn't all that inspired. (And no offense to the gardeners whose places were pictured! A single picture can only show so much and I don't think I know what those places really look like, from this selection.)

Anyway, I thought I'd share this.

Thanks for sharing Kyla.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
