Inspired by Nature

The natural world was indeed the inspiration for this repository of information.

I have always enjoyed walking and exploring and find the world around us exciting, inspiring and interesting. I had started the site Roaming the Paths to share my passion for walking. However, it occurred to me that the things that really excited me is all the things that make the world around us.

The plants and animals observed on my roaming walks varied not only day by day but season by season. The types and distribution of this flora and fauna is determined by geology, climate and weather, tides, seasons, human interaction and the interactions between all these species. I was determined to share some of this wonder in the natural environment.
