Share with us a childhood nature memory? 

I was lucky to grow up in the countryside, next to a sheep farm in South Wales, UK. My happiest memories were of adventuring in the surrounding fields, getting lost for the day making bows and arrows or hides. To this day, the smell of sheep dung is the most relaxing scent for me!
