Welcome to the blog of my Wild Flower Meadow for 2015.
A bit late starting this year due to nasty persistent virus that was so difficult to eradicate.
Sadly this may be the last year I may be keeping a blog for my meadow . The house and acre of land will be going on the market in the not too distant future . The new owners may put the land back to grazing or development who knows .
I sincerely hope not.
I hope it will be as loved and nurtured as It has been since I started it in 2006
In the mean time I will endeavour to keep the blog up to date with lots of pictures showing how the plants and wildlife play out in 2015 .I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I do producing it.
Please pop back from time to time to see the new additions and feel free to add any comments

Wild Life Around the House
Although this is not strictly speaking part of the meadow it is the wildlife around the house.
There are a pair of Jackdaws making a nest in the ventilation slot in the Old Granary wall .
The slot is is narrow you would never believe a Jackdaw could fit into it . but they squeeze into the largest part at the top and then drop down inside .They nested here last year and raised 4 chicks. Previous to that it was occupied by a pair of Pied Wagtails
Just next door in the other slot we have House Sparrows nesting . the male is sitting on the gutter waiting for me to go before he slips into the nest. House Sparrows are supposed to be getting quite rare but we have dozens of the noisy little things
