Dragonflies are out and about in all their glory across Britain now so keep your eyes peeled for them. This one comes from the collection I made for The Lost Gardens of Heligan, called Voices from the Lost Gardens.

With many thanks to Steve Jones, Author and Dragonfly expert @aparthenop on Instagram.

Bluebells are at their peak across Britain now and they love to be admired but they really suffer as a whole if any of them are trampled on. This one comes from the collection I made for The Lost Gardens of Heligan, called Voices from the Lost Gardens.

A perfect winter warmer, this one comes from the collection I made for The Lost Gardens of Heligan, called Voices from the Lost Gardens.

Jimmy Docherty really makes me laugh and he knows his stuff too - farmer, entomologist, television presenter and I would add comedian. 

Visit Jimmy’s Farm and support the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

This interview comes from a collection called Voices from the Ocean.

It is such an important series as we really know so little about the ocean. It comes to us with thanks to Gallifrey Foundation and Mission Blue, finding experts from all over the world to give us their time and energy so that we can be entertained whilst being educated.

“With knowing, comes caring, and with caring there’s hope, that we can find an enduring place f...

This is for Max, a Spider Ambassador, which we should all be really. Maybe once you've heard this fascinating House Spider, you may want to become one, it certainly changed my view of them.

Plants have a message too and as it's Spring, I thought it would be a good time to give the dandelion a voice.

A favourite of the Ashy Mining Bee.
