Did you know…

If your environment gets consistently cold during the winter or has extended periods of ice and snow that feeding wild birds during the winter can make a huge impact on their survival during the winter months? Winter storms can cut off many birds from their natural food supplies and can cause them to starve. Backyard feeding can make a difference.

Hanging Bird Feeders during the winter months not only provides the birds with easy access to food it’s rewarding and enjoyable for the whole family.

At City Home and Garden we are thrilled with our new collection of Bird Feeders. They are bright, fun and add a modern feel to any space.

We hope you are having a fantastic Summer so far. Sure it’s hot, really hot but not that we’re complaining right?  Well, maybe just a little.

Even in this heat I do enjoy spending time outdoors in our garden. When it gets dreadfully hot there is always a place to escape from the heat, whether it’s on the porch or our little shady nook, summer is far too short to not make the most of it.

When we purchased our home almost ten years ago I was so excited about having a backyard. I had big hopes of following in my mother’s foot steps of becoming a master gardener. We allocated a small area of our backyard to grow vegetables. Unfortunately for whatever reason, whether it was lack of sun or just lack of knowledge the veggies did not grow. That space became a work area and eventually just a big ol mess.


During Spring cleaning this year I realized that it was time to re-visit this area and turn it into a useable space.

The first thing I did was remove the composter. Because of the compost program in Toronto we had no need for it so I put an ad in Kijiji for a FREE composter, placed it on the sidewalk and within and hour it was gone. The next thing I did was dig out the huge juniper. I really loved it but it was just too big for the space. I gave the juniper to a friend where it now lives on. I also dug out our False Spirea which is now in my neighbor’s back yard. I cleaned out the area, leveled the soil and laid down some extra flag stones that we had left over from our patio. We didn’t have enough of them so we had to purchase a few more. I hadn’t given up on the idea of a veggy garden so I asked my husband to build a raised veggy bed using cedar planks. I currently have a monster of a tomato plant growing and some herbs but I am still learning and know next year not to plant my herbs too close to a mammoth tomato plant.



I  removed one side of the screen divider to open up the space. I bought a bunch of plants and river rocks and created a little garden. This space gets hot in mid day so an umbrella was a must – rather than buying a second umbrella (we had one for our table on the deck) my husband had an idea to dig a deep hole where we wanted the umbrella to go and placed a plastic pipe in the hole. Our umbrella pole sits in that pipe. When we aren’t using the umbrella we cover the hole with a rock to keep the rain out. It works beautifully.

At night we relax in the space enjoying our gel fuel  fire burner.

So now we have utilized every square inch of our yard however, our garden is constantly evolving so who knows what next year will bring.
