Getting Outdoors with Robin

Houston Outdoor Blog

Who needs television or computer screens when nature is filled with such beauty & entertaining wildlife. If you are thinking of putting in some new landscaping or sprucing up your existing landscaping, maybe a bird and butterfly habitat would be right for you. Butterflies and birds enjoy areas where they can eat, rest and have fresh water to drink. Most of us do not enjoy warm, stagnant water to drink and neither do they. Plant trees and plants make a good home and protect them from the elements and predators. During the winter it is always a bonus to add some herbs to the garden that caterpillars enjoy feasting on. These tasty treats include: parsley, dill, and fennel. Birds enjoy beauty berry, Echinacea, sunflower, trumpet vines and more. Gardening is such an enjoyable hobby as the wonderment of birds and butterflies is unending.
