Our nesting wreath

The nesting wreath that we made out of an old Christmas door wreath is now being used by lots of birds - bits of sheepswool, raffia twigs, dried hops and hessian are loosely stuffed into the moss so that the birds can pull them out. The wool is particularly popular.
Last year we used fleeces as to supress the weeds around the bases of our newly planted apple trees - unfortunately one tree was so badly eaten by both deer and hares that it died so, we re-used some of the wool for our wreath.
