Early hedgerow research (by Sheila aged 10)

Just as I was about to launch the Rambles with Nature pocket book, my mum gave me a large sack full of work I'd done when I was at primary school that she'd saved.  Turns out I've already done a hedgerow project before!  Back in the 80's!  Made me think again about how influential those formative years can be. 

I have no memory of doing this project, but it clearly made an impact on me. I would have been 10 years old.

Funnily enough, each of the final pocket books contains a pressed flower / leaf collected on a suburban walk I did with my mum around some of the old places I used to play and hang out in when I was small (how fitting). 

The book was officially launched at the end of July 2015...
