    The House Spider

    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.

    The Dandelion

    The Dandelion

    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.

    The Ashy Mining Bee
