Best of all, if you hate mowing and fussing around in the garden like I do, a messy garden is great for native fauna. Fallen logs make homes for lizards, frogs, spiders, bees and other insects. Plants are used as food and shelter by birds, bees, frogs, and even mammals. Leaf mulch is broken down into soil by earthworms, fungi and other critters. And the whole cycle just goes on and on.
Unfortunately photographing fauna is not my strong point. But here are a few shots of plants that will help attract birds, beast and insects to your garden.
|Appleberry (Billardiera scandens) is great for attracting|
native bees in spring. Crimson Rosellas also eat the flowers
and fruit, though there are other species they prefer.
|The abundant flowers of Coast Beard-heath,|
which bring in masses of local bee species.
