The hyper hygienic neighbour

It’s gardening time, most of us will think what seeds, bulbs or plants to grow. What attracts wildlife, flies, bugs, butterflies, bees etc. We are good like that we try to encourage our children to get involved in the garden, L having his own plot, mommy is in charge with the flowers and dad for the veggies. But whilst we are enjoying our little garden, our neighbour is ultra mad. She removed most natural in her garden changing her turf to artificial.  Poor living organisms, how will they survive. I remember one time G’s mom got us a little bird feeder, we put it up by the fence and put some seeds in it, she told me off for doing so, why? Because she doesn’t like the birds. I planted lots of flowers to encourage the bees and butterflies to roam freely in the garden, she told me off, because she said bees are annoying. I mean we have the moral responsibility to teach our children to love nature not to hate it. We have the moral responsibility to at least care for our environment not trash it with artificial sh*t.

This time I don’t give a damn anymore, I bought sh*t loads of bulbs, flower seeds and plants for the bedding to encourage more flies, insects and all in the garden. I am determined to piss her off. I just wish the birds will see that they are welcome in our garden and after having dinner at ours may the poop be at hers.

It is super important for us that our children will learn on how to care and look after our environment so they can pass it on to their children, we want them to love it and enjoy it. We encourage digging, muck and dirt. We don’t want hyper clean children, who are restricted in doing things, or who are crazy about keeping clean. Children are meant to be sticky, mucky and disgusting. They are meant to explore not to be restricted indoors.

This spring we will do quite a bit of project with the children:

1. We will build a sandpit with some special features in it.

2. We will build our own bug hotel from forest twigs and wood.

3. We will plant more flowers for the butterflies and bees.

4. We will plant more varieties of veggies.

5. We will clone some of our successful crops.

I just hope the lady next door doesn’t get too upset but hey that’s life, you cannot have it all 😊

Write soon 😘😘😘😘😘
