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

A gorgeous warm spring day . warm enough not to wear a coat . The daffodils are looking beautiful .I planted an extra 500 over the winter 300 in the meadow 200 in the garden . In the meadow they were planted around the fruit trees .although a little sparse now they will soon double up.
The Primroses ,Ox slips and Anemone Blanda are already flowering but the Fritillary are very disappointing I think this is due to the arrival of the Lily Beetle that was unknown in this area until about 2 years ago now it is a real pest on Lilies and also Fritillery
