The meadow is now changing from mainly yellow and white to purple pink and white . The Ox Eye Daisies have now gone to seed as has the Birds Foot Trefoil and Yellow Rattle. The beautiful Pink Musk Mallow, Wild Carrot and the Lesser and Greater Knapweed now take centre stage. Usually there would be clouds of lovely butterflies but I can count the number I have seen so far on two hands with fingers to spare. Just hoping if we get a bit of warm sunshine we may see some. Quite a few Bumble Bees and pollinating insects but so lacking in butterflies.
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.
