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

The end of March

View across the meadow
It The weather has turned unseasonably hot we are having temperatures of around 22 degrees centigrade , Here On Anglesey this is the kind of temperatures we would expect to have  during a warm spell in the middle of the summer.This has caused the early demise of the Daffodils and pushing on other flowers .
The plums are starting into flower. This is the first time for some of these trees .I really hope the weather doesn’t turn very cold or frosty again  as this would kill the flowers and put paid to my plum crop  for another year.

I have a small clump of Primroses that I planted last year they look so pretty I must sow some more under the hawthorn hedge.

I got half of the new shrubs planted in the stony patch at the bottom of the meadow . and I took a chance and transplanted a large Ceanothus. I think I may have killed it. This spell of hot weather has taken its toll despite watering with  copious amounts of water. All the shrubs have been mulched with last years hay. This will help keep the soil moist underneath and aid them to establish 

The fritillaries are flowering this is the first time I have ever grown this pretty little flower ,I love its nodding little bells
