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

Mid August flowers in the meadow

As we get well into August the flowers that are opening are less and less and soon the grass will be getting cut in the centre of the meadow and finally in September the sides.The grass has grown really strong and high and I just hope the self seeding of the Yellow rattle will help to control it a little better next year. A few butterflies have appeared this week but only Peacocks Eye,Small Tortoise Shell and of course plenty of Cabbage Whites
