good point. :| my yard is pretty good for animals. we have plenty of foliage, berries, and birdseed we put out. the only thing that is missing is water. :(

Out of our entire neighborhood, we're the only family without a lawn. And we love it. Don't need to mow anything. XD

heh heh There are rabbits in the wash down the street and I give them some carrots, but I leave down in the middle of the wash. I don't want them up near the streets where they will get hit by a car.

I had blackberry bushes lining our house, then these mean people cut them ALL down. it was home to many bunnies! And we were planning to make a blackberry pie. (Oh my, how wonderful would that had been. :x )

We have a bayou behind our house, home to much wildlife like, egrets, blue herons, green herons, and cormarants.

we are just about to move into a four acre property in Wanneroo (in australia) (yay! go me!)! We will have to change the landscaping a bit because the grass is right now quite sparse, but we will sort that out. :mrgreen: we have many trees, lots of space, and we will be putting two ponds in - one for decoration, one for a horse. the problem is, i have a small dog. he chases birds off from his food bowl, and im a little worried that he may (though he has never killed anything in his short life) accidently hurt some wildlife. When we were living in singapore for a year there were some gerbils that had gotten loose from some neighbours. he would chase them around the yard and hold them down with his paws and hold them gently in his mouth. im just worried that he may be a bit harder now that he is older. is this a problem factor for a wildlife friendly yard?
Upon a moutaintop
A wolf sings of her despair
To the moon above, of a forlorn love
Her tale echos on the cold night air
She waits for the one who will respond
To see him appear
A wolf just as she, and longing to be
The one to ease all of her fear
