A Tour of Our Garden Aviary

I have wanted an aviary since I was a child and obsessed with the one in my Grandads garden. He had canaries, finches and some funny little quail at the bottom, pecking up all of the dropped seed.

This year I was finally able to make my dream a reality and together Gareth and I put together an aviary in our own garden. We’ve been slowly introducing our finches to it and it’s been somewhat of a process – but now we’re very nearly at the end and so today I really wanted to share it with you and give you a little tour of the aviary and its occupants.

May Life Updates

Spring is finally here and I have been enjoying it as much as I can; walks down blossom-lined streets, long days spent outside in the sunshine and even the odd BBQ thrown in for good measure.

The past few weeks have felt really good – productive and positive.
