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

More flowers for July

Although the awful rainy windy weather continues with only an odd sunny day here and there the Meadow flowers continue flowering.. Admittedly all the flowers   are a lot taller than usual ladies bedstraw for example  is about 4 feet tall where as in a dry summer it would be 12 to 15 inches high.likewise the grasses .With the excessive rain the grass is starting to flatten with the weight of the water.This means the overall view of the meadow is not as nice as usual
Greater knapweed
 Centaurea scabiosa

Hairy willow herb
Epilobium hirsutum

Himalayan Balsam
Impatiens glandulifera

Ladies Bedstraw
 Galium  verum
