"I spent a great deal of time in the area watching wild creatures go about their lives," she says. "And it was there that I collected plant material for the borders of this book. Unfortunately, the area is now a housing development."
Fleming wants to enusre that the former woodland is not forgotten. "I hope this book will inspire others to preserve--and create--their own wildlife habitats."
