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

Summer is over in the meadow

Meadow ready for cutting
All to soon the meadow flowers are over and its time to cut and remove all the dead flowers. The lovely sunny weather has suddenly brought all the flowers to an end ,and the also time  to put the meadow to sleep until the spring just the contractor to cut the Hawthorn  hedges.  Even though the flowers are finished there are still things  to see and the meadow is constantly changing through Autumn and into winter . There will be more bulbs to be sourced and buy and plant seeds to buy and plugs to have ready to plant out next spring
All cut ready to collect


Nearly done collected into heaps

  1. I haven't been out walking the trails much this summer. In fact, at the house, I never got summer planted. All I had in the flowerbeds this year was the perennials and several volunteers. Thanks for a lovely travel through time. I have enjoyed your meadow.
    Don't know if they would be appropriate in Wales. My volunteers include cosmos, cockscomb, black-eyed Susan, and cornflower (which you already have).
