Today I am sure no one needs to be told that the more birds a yard can support, the fewer insects there will be to trouble the gardener the following year.
And, every gardener knows that every bird destroyed, and every nest robbed, is an unmistakable surge in insects, a struggle we know only too well.
Gardeners and farmers have a personal interest, and a strong one, in the preservation of birds.
The garden is a doorway to other worlds; one of them, of course, is the world of birds.
The garden is their dinner table, bursting with bugs and worms and succulent berries.
But, if you please, could you kindly leave me some radishes.
