As I leafed through it last night, I came to "The Green Pages," a section at the end they call a round-up of "eco-friendly resources for the green-of-heart" and there under web resources was this:
This delightful, well-written blog from Yvonne Cunnington, a gardener in southern Ontario's USDA Zone 5, conveys her desire to work with nature, not against it, because "Nature tends to win anyway," she writes. Gorgeous photographs of her garden accompany each entry.
I had no idea: the mention certainly made my day!
The theme of the first issue is creating a backyard haven for birds and butterflies. There's a story about different butterflies and their life cycles, which I found interesting as we get a lot of butterflies here, but aside from monarchs, I didn't know all that much about them.
There are instructions for building a bluebird house, which I'd like to try, as well as a story on how to create a backyard pond that's wildlife friendly. All in all, the magazine looks like a welcome addition to BHG's stable of gardening books.
