Wildflowers

If you are wondering what a wildflower meadow looks like – here is one we made earlier…

This is at Berrybanks, and Linda and myself spent a couple of hours puling up nettles. This area was dense scrubby habitat a few years ago and we cleared a lot of the scrub and put down a wildflower seed mix. It is now open and full of all sorts of wildflowers and grasses.

This has brought in loads of insects and birds.

The drain is working again but there is something blocking it. It seems to be something plastic but a poor choice of footwear stopped me getting down to have a better look.

And lastly a little video clip to bring it all to life.

Already looking forward to next week.
