ColletteRedman is talking about growing Something else from Manawatu-Wanganui

Garden ready!

Here is my Christmas inspired bug hotel. 

I started with the recycling of planter pots I had in my shed and used wire to tie them all together. 

I filled the pots with varied materials to attract a wide rang of insects. I have pinecones of all sizes and from different pine trees, bark, drirfwood and bamboo. 

The “Christmas lights” are the pods from the eucalyptus tree that I painted with Resene paints so they will last outdoors in the weather.

I sooo loved making this and its now sitting nicely in my garden.
