About us

My name is Rick Blythe and I own this website. I write most, but not all of the content here. I try to use my own photos when possible as well.

The purpose of the site is to share interesting facts about nature we can all find in our own backyards. The backyard is a perfect place to find nature. With just one look, you can learn something new and interesting about the natural world! If we just take a moment to look, there is much to be seen in our gardens. If you take a moment, there’s much that awaits your discovery- from what plants are best for improving soil quality and fertility levels (and why); how different animals benefit one another through cooperation or competition depending on their individual needs; even which types of insects may be bothersome.

We can also learn a great deal about how to improve the health of our parcel of the outdoors. I hope you find something of interest during your visit.
