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

evening of April 19th

 Hedgerow Crane's-bill (Geranium pyrenaicum)
 This lovely little Cranesbill has not flowered in my meadow before.Its the most beautifu shade of pink with park purple stripes and a dark purple centre 

Ground-ivy (Glechoma hederacea)
This beautiful Cock Pheasant
was at the bottom of the meadow this evening. He is sporting fine breeding plumage but alas he has no mate, his female companion was killed on the road 2 weeks ago and he has not found another as yet.

  1. Hello! Love the new photo of the meadow. Here in northern Indiana, the weather has been too cold, too windy, and too wet. I don't have much in bloom at the moment. Even the daffodils haven't, although they have in other places around the county. I have a small cluster of grape hyacinth, and a regular hyacinth which has bloomed. I love it's fragrance.
    The local woodlands had only three wildflowers in bloom (that I could tell). I haven't identified them yet. By the way, I appreciate the way you have identified everything by its scientific name and by its common name.
    My neighbor's 80 acres is posted as a pheasant reserve. I haven't seen any though. Sunday, however, I had two tom turkeys in full parade dress chasing a hen around the house. I was able to get some good photos right through the window.
    Good night,
