Welcome to Inspired by Nature Direct. A site for lovers of the countryside and our natural world.
Featured here is a blog about orchards, cider, country living and the wildlife that surrounds us. You will also find a recipe of the month, inspired by something or someone and always tasty. You will also find our online shop, featuring hand-picked (and some hand-made) items all connected to nature, either by design, subject or materials used. Sales of these products will help towards the creation of a wildlife garden, woodland and orchard in South Somerset. We love to support artisan craftspeople who have caught our eye, and the latest is the Barefoot Beachcomber - look out for some stunning cards and framed pictures coming very soon, created using materials found on a Devon beach along with vintage finds.
Many of the photographs on the site, including the glorious banner pictures, are by Anne Clark Photography (all photos are available as cards or prints).
