Spring is on the way, flowers will start to grow, the sun stays a little longer each day and nature flourishes all around us. Some of nature’s most beautiful creatures show us their beautiful patterns and glide through the air, dancing effortlessly as they go about their day.
The Butterflies, Birds, and Bees show us that nature is close, and without them, 90% of wild plants wouldn’t be here. We all love to watch them hop from plant to plant as they work hard. Whilst some people have gardens and others have limited space these ingenious homes can be attached to any shed, post or even an outside wall.
Kikkerland Little Bee House
The Kikkerland Little Bee House costs £10 from Beaumonde is a great way to invite nature’s little pollinators to take off their (yellow) jackets and stay awhile! Cute in any garden or backyard, the Little Bee Home is great for the environment. Give bees a place to call home while they take care of our planet.
Kikkerland Little Butterfly House
The Kikkerland Little Butterfly House costs £15 from Utility Gift is a cute, easy to hang habitat for all our beautiful butterfly buddies. Invite butterflies to rest in a safe space, just for them. A great addition to any outdoor area. It features two vertical slotted ‘doors’ that invite butterflies in and keep them safe from birds and predators.
Bored of common all garden wooden bird boxes? Then it’s time to invest in some cool bird real estate with these fabulous DIY birdhouses. Choose from a traditional Japanese Tea House, or a cosy Log Cabin both from a Baltic shop for £6.95, and make your blue tits, sparrows and chaffinches become the envy of the local garden bird community.
Made from wax-coated cardboard, simply assemble with no need for tools. They even come with a piece of dowling so the lucky bird can hang out on the porch looking down on the poor non-designer birdhouses. As they are flat packs, these also make a great post-able gift for the twitcher in your life who loves to house birds in houses with added swag.
