One of the best parts about cottage mornings is seeing wildlife around your yard!
You can invite even more wild friends to your yard with a specialized garden. Cottage Life said, "Wildlife-friendly gardens can also attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, all animals that benefit cottage properties by pollinating plants so that flowers bloom and fruits and vegetables grow."
Decorating with native plants is a great way to help your your environment as well! Plus, they can often be a lot less work. Try planting black eyed susans or swamp milkweeds and see what wildlife shows up!
