about this blog



I started this blog in 2008. It started mainly as a way of tracking the evolution of my dry garden, and that led to an interest in photography and in the creatures that live in the garden. It's still about the garden and wildlife, but now my passion is thinking about how we humans can learn to co-exist with wild animals and plants, especially in urban areas.

    1. Hi Liz, hope your 8 year old loves it as much as we do. I'm not sure it's been re-released. I got a copy from the library and re-read it.
