As a life long nature lover I am always aware of my surroundings and anything moving will attract me!

After a five year battle to grow a lawn in my new back garden, I finally gave up the fight with leatherjackets (cranefly larvae) and threw wildflower seed over it.

The result isn’t everyone’s idea of beautiful but I’m seeing more insects than ever. And in this time of climate change and loss of biodiversity, I’m delighted with my new ‘lawn’!
