Small Space

you don’t need to have

a lot to make a difference;

a small space, inviting of life,

is all you need:

just welcome in the

green of all shapes and sizes,

you’ll soon find it

alive in vibrant colour,

a haven for wildlife,

filled with darting feet and

flitting wings

On day 304 of 365 Days Wild I spent some time sitting beside the pond, listening to the birds, and watching the squirrels as they scurried through the trees… and across the ground right in front of me.

As I sat beside the pond I thought about just how beneficial for wildlife the Nature Project is, despite being a relatively small space, and just how much it has improved during the six or so years it has been ongoing. This led on to other thoughts about how even smaller spaces can be equally beneficial in their own way.

It doesn’t even need to be a full garden. Even a simple pot of flowers on a doorstep or a windowbox gives food for pollinators. A bird feeder helps the garden birds. Any sort of plant life that is allowed to thrive helps out.

The poem soon followed.

Have you got a small space that’s inviting to wildlife where you are? Let me know in the comments below.
