Urbanization and modern farming practices have had such a huge impact on our environment. Many beautiful wildflowers and the species of insects that depend on them are simply not adapted to changes we have made to our land. I feel so blessed to have lived for a while on the edge of a natural haven — Cranham Common in Gloucestershire, England.
