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

I recently purchased this reference book . Although I have at least 10 wild flower books this one has got to be my favourite. It has helped  make identifying the wild flowers in the meadow that are new to me really easy. Previously I hadn't been that accurate in my observations and the three varieties of Willowherb below I thought that they were all the same , but since having this new book I now realise  they are all different 

Broard-leaved Willowherb Epi
lobium montanum

Chickweed Willowherb Epilobium alsinifolium

Marsh Willowherb Epilobium palustre
