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

Apple blossom Malus domestica IRISH PEACH  2012m37

Honesty Lunaria annua 2012M35

Shining Cransbill geranium lucidum 2012m11

 This is the first of the Apple trees to flower this year .The others will be a couple of weeks by the look of them yet. last year they were all in flower by 20th April .which is surprising as last years winter was so mild and the year before so harsh.
So many of these local wild flowers have re introduced themselves back into the meadow .It is a real joy to walk around and find something that hasn’t flowered in previous years .Some were sown several years ago and have only just matured enough to flower others the birds have introduced and others that I have planted as plugs or bulbs or re sown from seed .Then there are bi-annuals that I only see every other year. The meadow is ever changing each week is different.
