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

Mind November Weather

The continuing really mild weather is producing strange combinations within the meadow. While the birds are stuffing themselves on the huge quantity of large fat hips, the roses themselves are still flowering.

We have had one or two mornings with a slight frost but nothing to do any damage.
the grass is still growing ,and required a further cut.
Saturday was spent trying to remove the rocks that the builder left behind after building the stone wall. these remaining ones must weigh between 3/4 hundred weight and over .I think they may just have to be rolled to the edge of the meadow to enable me to get the grass cutters into the bottom corner. 
I will then resow with annual and perennial flowers.  I still have plug plants to plant but I am unsure whether or not to plant some now or to leave them all under glass until the spring  I may leave the weather conditions decide.
