Hootsuite Inc. : Tucked away on the north Devon coast, this tiny cabin was the summer home and studio of artists Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards. It paints a picture of their life and work here with the sound of the sea ever present. What inspires your creativity?

Hootsuite Inc. : With help from players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Arts Council England, we’re re-imagining Brockhampton’s orchards.

Mimicking the seed chambers of an apple, the orchards tell the story of the humble fruit’s arrival thousands of years ago, while providing homes for local wildlife.

Hootsuite Inc. : For busy bees in need, we're planting four million blossom trees to help them thrive.

Why not grow your own bee-friendly blooms at home, like lavender or foxgloves. If you're short on space, some thyme in a window box would be the bee's knees.

Hootsuite Inc. : Happy . You may be surprised to learn there are around 270 types of bee in Britain.

Let’s see if you can tell them apart – can you tell us which photo is a honey bee, a common carder bee, a tawny mining bee and an ashy mining bee?

Hootsuite Inc. : Who would you invite to a glittering party here?

Coleton Fishacre in Devon was the country home of the D’Oyly Carte family. Its Arts and Crafts style is theatrical and gave them an ideal space to entertain.

Hootsuite Inc. : Hawthorn is a rich food source for birds and insects, including many caterpillars and is a familiar sight along hedgerows, woodlands and scrub. Human foragers are fond of its edible qualities too. Have you found plenty of hawthorn where you are?

Hootsuite Inc. : Perfectly adapted to their surroundings, you’d be forgiven for not seeing how many sanderlings are relaxing here on the rocks at Portstewart Strand, County Londonderry.

Hootsuite Inc. : If you make time to get closer to nature, we don't think you'll regret it.
