Feathered friends have started visiting our small balcony garden. A few flowering plants and an earthen bowl with some water is all it took, and now, some of these birds are a regular. . Its the house-sparrows, bulbuls, and these spotted doves for now, and munias, silverbills, sunbirds, etc. are awaited. . . The spotted dove is a small and somewhat long-tailed pigeon that is a common resident breeding bird across its native range on the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. . . #birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #bird #spotteddove #dove #pigeons #birds #birdlover #balconygarden #gardenfriends #featheredfriends #birds_illife #birds_of_instagram #home #waterbowl #birdstagram #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers_daily #birds_perfection #birds_of_ig #instabirds #conservation #nature #naturelover #instagood #instagram #ig_birds #nuts_about_birds #pocket_birds #photography #panasoniclumix

Watering my plants, taking photos and faffing around yesterday when my son casually says “there’s a snake Mum”..a rather large black snake looking right at us!..I screamed a lot (always helpful) and spent the rest of the day inside.😅 Have you had any close encounters lately?

Good morning ( Bonjour ) ( Czesc ) - An example of an old Southern Farmhouse, this abandoned dwelling sits on State land, it's been utilized for many things,since it's original purpose, At one point it was a home for wayward girls, teaching them self respect, basic living skills farming,cooking,sewing, it's been abandoned now for many years. Hopefully those girls grew into wonderful women and had happy lives. Peaceful Sunday 🙇 ⛪ 🌹 #gardengate #gardenfriends #enchanting #gardenflower #pinkflower #pink #friends #rva #maga #patriot #nra #weekend #nikon #calm #sunday #breathe #christiannation #church #powerofprayer #joy #dreams #lovely #farm #farmhousestyle #womenfortrump ❤️ 🇺🇸 #love

A quiet revolution happened in gardening when it was realised that insects and bugs could be used as pest control. More effective and cheaper than using chemicals, simple observation of natural systems brought us back this almost lost knowledge. Today I present you one of the gardener best friends, the so loved Ladybird (Coccinelliade family). If you are lucky enough to have ladybirds in your garden, aphids, mealybugs, other destructive insects and even fungus will not stand a chance. This wonderful bugs dine only on pests and don't harm other good insects. Adult ladybirds are capable of consuming 50 to 60 aphids a day, but their larvae can consume even more than that! A specific ladybird, the 22-spot ladybird, yellow in colour and commonly found in Europe, feeds not on insects but on mildew, a fungus that can "attack" many vegetables. To attract ladybirds to your garden, firstly you have to make your garden attractive to them, providing some of their favourite nectar-rich plants, like coriander, dill, yarrow, tansy, scented geraniums and fennel, amongst others. Providing a shelter for overwintering is a good way of keeping them around throughout the seasons. A ladybird house is very easy to make: a log with holes drilled deep into it (~5mm diameter) or a bunch of dry, hollow canes or bamboo will do the job! #ladybirds #gardenfriends #naturalpestcontrol #balconygardening #urbangardening #sustainableliving #edibleurbanoasis #ediblebalcony #thehappygardeninglife #humanswhogrowfood #instagarden_world

My find while exploring the beautiful Vergelegen Wine Estate Gardes yesterday. I have often seen the spider, or the nest... but never the spider eating at her nest. 🕷🦎 “The Common rain spider (Palystes superciliosus), is a species of huntsman spider native to Southern Africa. It has a body length of 15–36 mm and a leg span of up to 110mm. Its preferred habitat is scrubland and savannah woodland. Spiders in the The spiders will often enter homes before rain, where they will prey on geckos and other insects. After mating in the early summer, the female constructs a round egg sac about 60–100 mm in size made of silk, with twigs and leaves woven into it. The female constructs the sac over 3–5 hours, then aggressively guards it until the spiderlings, who hatch inside the protective sac, chew their way out about three weeks later. Females will construct about three of these egg sacs over their two-year lives.” #findinggodinallthings #rainspider #palystessuperciliosus #spider #harmless #spidernest #spidereating #spidereatinglizard #southafricanspiders #naturesmagic #gardenfriends #lookandyouwillfind #spiderinfo #justforfun #learnaboutnature
