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

Residents and visitors who share the meadow (birds)

Robin Chicks

This is just a very small selection of birds that we have visiting the meadow. we also have Blackbirds . Thrushes ,Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Bullfinch, Blue Tits, Great Tits ,Jackdaws ,Crows Magpies.During the very hard  winter of 2010  we even had a Raven in the hen pen eating from the hen feeder . A Buzzard landed in the meadow tonight after either a rat or vole . The visitors that thrilled me most a couple of weeks ago was a family of Linnets  6 in all. Lovely to see their bright pink chests.They were really tucking in to the flower heads of the Ox Eye Daisies and Corn Marigolds that had gone to seed
