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

I bought a new apple tree for the meadow yesterday. My Bramley apple tree died not long after planting it . I hadn't noticed it had damage on its trunk. When I saw this one I thought it was a must have . It is called Anglesey pig snout (due to its shape )it dates from the 1600s and has been in constant cultivation here on the Island since then . It is a green baking apple a good choice to replace the Bramley
