Blog Of The Month - March
This year, I've decided to do a monthly Blog Of The Month post where I feature a blog I'm enjoying reading. Some blogs will be new to me, others may be blogs I've been reading for a while. I hope that by doing this, I can introduce some of my readers to other, interesting blogs, though I know that some of you will already read the blogs I feature.
The blog of the month for March is Gardens and Wildlife. Snow Bird lives in Liverpool and has a garden like no other. Who else, for example, has a set of wooden stocks knocking about outside their door, or has a living trampoline? I'm fascinated and wonder what's coming next.
As well as blogging about her garden, Snow Bird gives regular updates on the volunteering work she does in the local wildlife rescue centre. Not only is wildlife cared for at the shelter, but also domestic and farm animals. There are some very sad tales of how the animals have come to be in the centre, but also very many happy outcomes, and I love to read these uplifting posts. Snow Bird also cares for Herbie, a special needs hedgehog, and Curly, a stray cat, in her own garden. It's wonderful to read that animals who can't be released back in to the wild can still live a happy life.
Snow Bird has two very playful young dogs, Sam and Annie, and they both came from the rescue. If you read the most recent post, you will see how Sam's life has been transformed. He had such a sad start in life, but now has Annie as his partner in crime, and is a happy, carefree pooch.
I'm enjoying reading back through all the previous posts that Snow Bird has written, I'm about half way through now, and all I can say is that it's like a good book, very hard to put down. I'm sure I'll have caught up in no time. If you don't already know Snow Bird, do pop over to her blog and have a read, and don't forget to tell her that I sent you.
I'm a forty eight year old mum of two and I live on the outskirts of Leeds in West Yorkshire. I've been married to Mick for twenty six years and we have a son, Daniel, who's twenty two and a daughter, Eleanor, who's eighteen. I gave up work in 2010 and now have more time to indulge in my hobbies of knitting, crochet and gardening. I hope you enjoy reading and will follow along with my adventures.
