Nature's Garden | The Story of the Bee

Nature's Garden | The Story of the Bee

From a soft breeze rustling the leaves, to the melodic chirping of crickets and pretty singing of birds, as summer transforms the natural world there’s no shortage of instruments taking part in this unique symphony of wild music.

Nature's Garden | The Story of the Dragonfly

Nature's Garden | The Story of the Dragonfly

Coloured with blues and greens like precious gemstones, dragonflies are a sight to behold as they dart between leaves and branches, their wings moving almost imperceptibly as they dance through the sky. Here in the UK they’re a staple of summertime, hovering over gardens and bodies of water as we enjoy the warmer weather, a silent presence with wings that glisten in the sun.
