Garden animal

Garden animal - A life with nature Welcome to my animal blog! My name is Dirk and I am happy to take you on my journey through the fascinating world of animals and gardening. Born 54 years ago, I have had an insatiable curiosity for the animal world around me since childhood. Although I have moved professionally in other industries, my true passion has always been for animals and nature. It is remarkable how a small garden has become such an important part of my life. Many of my fondest memories are associated with the animals that share our home. Whether it's the curious squirrels scurrying across the trees in the morning, the colorful variety of birds that visit our feeders, or the busy bees and butterflies that pollinate our flowers, every moment with them is invaluable to me. This blog is my contribution to sharing my experiences, discoveries and insights with like-minded people. Here I will share stories of memorable encounters with wildlife, offer tips on gardening and creating wildlife-friendly habitats, and take you on my journeys through nature. Thank you so much for being here! Sincerely, Dirk aka Garden Animal
