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

 this common spotted 
orchid is white with pink markings the other orchids range through several shades of pink to purple

This clump of Birds foot trefoil measures over 3 feet across the soil really seems to suit them here

This is the first year that the Oriental Poppies have flowered  for  me  despite them being from mixed seed so far there are only the two colours this pink and the blood red one

Only a few of these cornflowers this year I didn't resow a lot of annuals but the dry weather has meant that very few of the spring sown seed has germinated 

Due to the very dry conditions the corn marigolds are shorter and the blooms are smaller than other years

 These beautiful biannual Echiums always give a good show be it only every second year but they are about 3 and half feet high and full of blooms right up the stem. A real feast for the bees

Although this is a pest of a weed in the garden I really love the colour and it is very welcome  in the meadow  If I had a bed of Euphorbias I think I would have to include it 

I love Foxgloves they always look so majestic,  its a pleasure to have these in the meadow also
