:swoon: it is wonderful! i love to see the work in progress, to see the way you are building it.

 

and the gravel is looking perfect! not easy, either. :flower: (and now the tyres are making sense - i was a little :huh2: about them before :lol: but they probably make really good hiding places.)

This is amazing. I also love watching it develope and grow in layers. The gravel part with the tires and boxes is great, seeing it first & then with the added greenery.

Without your captions I would have thought it a very tidy dump. Get those things out of there! :roflmao: What would be fulfilling their function in a wilderness area? Boulders & brush?

terns tend to breed on shingle, sand and in dunes so i guess rocks and marram grass, whatever bushes were around, and flotsam and jetsam...

This is just so wonderful! I really like the close-up of the newly poopified nesting site. The details of the plants are amazing and all the detail really shows up. :flower: I have to keep reminding myself that it isn't a photo.
