A photographic diary of my wild flower meadow throughout 2015 depicting the flowers and wild life within the meadow.The meadow is only small less than 1/2 an acre and was started in 2006
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

We have just had the worst storm I have known in the 40 years we have lived here . As i walked down the meadow this afternoon after the storm had passed I was amazed to see this tiny cowslip .Apart from flowering far too early it had stood firm while being battered by 100 mile an hour wind, also the snowdrops not a mark on them .thy look so delicate , but deceivingly tough to survive unscathed.
My notepad computer developed a fault part way through my first post so I had to send it away for repair . We are now up and running again but lots of catch up to do. This post although not directly attached to the meadow ,but is to local wild life. I was brought the most beautiful little Barn Owl just over a week ago . Sadly she was dead but not a mark on her . She had been hit by a vehicle on the A55. The main road that runs through the middle of our beautiful Island of Anglesey I took lots of photos of her as I intend to paint her to the best of my ability at some point. She was ringed so her history was known. She was six months old and had come from a nest outside Caernarfon on the mainland . Although quite far by car only 6 miles across the Menai Straits to where she was killed . I have never seen a Barn Owl up close before and she was so beautiful.. I just had to share.
