I'm going to plant Lunas too, when I have harvested my Carminas and planted the Opis Centiflora. I was visiting a garden recently where it was entirely Lunas in fruit, but no badger came, and then the owner harvested them all after one entire lot of food was gone. I was very disappointed and hope I will keep mine a little longer. It seems a shame to go that trouble and then give up!

I think I am very lucky arriving at the bonsais imminently....it will be possible for me to have some serious attempts at attracting interesting creatures while I am waiting for the trees to grow.

Sorry, this did start out as a comment on your garden, but turned into a general ramble! Rolling Eyes

I love Bellis Lycaenas too! Very Happy
Oh, and I hope you do plant some Luna Serenas, 'cos they are also one of my favourites.

Ha ha, that's okay nicolle, I love rambling! It can make for a long conversation but it is always interesting and often fascinating to see where it all ends up! Very Happy

I would like to think that I could outlast more than 1 platter of food just for the chance to see a badger in my garden. After all I have all my required Butterflies so will have enough space to keep the Lunas going till I need to make room for the Birds etc, fingers crossed anyway! afro

haha I love that you're a compulsive rearranger! I just realized about a month or two ago that you could move the plants within your own garden... I felt somewhat stupid that I had gone so long without noticing the arrows Laughing

Thank you April! I am very excited about the bunny, who would have thought a virtual rabbit could bring so much joy! cheers

Your garden is looking great and soooo tempting for badgers that one even came along and no-one saw him. My excuse is that it was about 3am here....what's everyone else's? You went to work??? Shocked

What a shame, I would love to have seen that wee badger.

I was helping look for a very important Lego piece for my son's creation and considering how many of those blocks he has (in 3 huge tubs) it was a major mission. I was gutted when I saw the badger had been and gone in the brief time I was away from the computer! Sad
But then I remembered, the Lunas will be staying for a while and Connor made the most fantastic looking truck! So it wasn't really a big deal Very Happy

I have to admit that the daffodils look good in the eggshells and your whole garden is looking pretty. Bring on that bunny!

Yes I love your daffs too - have you girls noticed that the flowers move too? I thought mine was facing a different way before and I checked out Nicolle's image of my garden and indeed it was facing a different way to how it is today. sunny

Big congratulations on the tortoise coming along and being spotted by a pal!

It's good news for you about the fruits, although I was looking forward to seeing you grow a pineapple, as I never achieved that myself Wink

Lovely to see a picture of your badger! Though for a second I was expecting to see spots on his coat ... "spotted badger" ... Maybe one of the new critters? geek

Hee hee April, I never thought of it that way, it does sound rather like a pattern on the badger's fur! I imagine there's a fair few such critters in fairyland already! Laughing

How sad is this...I have dreamt about the new wildlife, not once, but twice. The first time it was an elephant and one other creature that I can't recall now...it paled into insignificance, obviously, beside the elephant. And the second time it was some kind of a spotted cat. I probably arrived at that partly because of my own spotted cat, Claud, and partly because of the way we use "spotted" in relation to finding something.

That's my confession then. Anyone else want to make one??

Nice pic of your gems! Smile
I felt bad too when I harvested mine so quickly. I want to take some 'time out' at some stage and plant all the Praecocias at once. It would mean no room for a wildlife food table though. Suspect

That is a pretty shot and, I agree, the sun rays look good against the blue, but the butterflies are still my favourite fruit.

As I said to you last night, I think we need a creature, or a family of creatures, such as lizards, which enjoy basking in the sun and would be attracted by them, then we'd see them about more.

And, while we're on the subject, I'd like a magpie, which would be attracted by the sparkly gems, and a Valentine's lovebird, attracted by some heart like flower.

Oh, the butterflies are still my favourite fruit too! I came across a garden recently with all seven butterflies.....it was an incredibly beautiful garden and I actually took a few minutes to admire it, instead of rushing off to the next one. Seven fruiting solaris ignifloras wouldn't be near as lovely, I think they are more of a garden enhancer!


I just love your ideas for new critters, Linda. I think you should put them in the suggestions section of the Fairyland forum (if you haven't already done so!) Very Happy
