Once upon a time...
our garden was neatly maintained, pristine, trim and tidy.
Then we moved in.
Since that day in 2015, we've added a pond, left areas unmown, allowed borders to rewild, created a log pile, hung up bird feeders, provided fresh drinking water daily, opened a bee hotel, installed a bat box, built an owl box for squirrels dotted home-made bird and hedgehog houses around, and basically let it grow into a disorderly blotch of untamed bliss.
One of the many perks of having a low maintenance approach to gardening.
Throw in a wildlife-mad digital illustrator with a background in graphic design and an office window overlooking their garden, and you end up with a website like this.

This spotter's jotter gallery is a collection of rushed photos taken through windows that haven't seen a squeegee in years.
Also, I think blurriness adds character and charm to wildlife photography

that have dramatically reduced such collisions).
Try telling me nature's not worth going a bit wild for.
