I'm looking forward to my meadow in 2012 Lots of jobs to do but It has been too wet and windy so far .
No signs yet of the snowdrops I planted last year but odd daffodil leaves pushing through here and there.
The winter has been so mild I doubt if the seeds that need cold will germinate at all.
I have once again bought Ivy Boomrape seeds ( Orobanche hederae) It is a semi parasitic plant that lives on Ivy . I hope will establish its self under the Hawthorn Hedge.
When there were sheep constantly grazing the field before I bought it the Ivy never got a chance to encroach on the grass as the sheep constantly ate it. Now . its creeping into the grass.
Who knows what there will be flowering in the meadow this year or what there will be visiting in the way of wildlife . Please come back and visit from time to time and share it with me
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
