You may remember the earlier postings on Facebook showing volunteers preparing and then sowing seed alongside the path in the area sown last year by the cubs.
Preparation May 1
Seed Sowing May 18
I am pleased to say all that work was not in vain, after a long delay because of a lack of rain in June, flowers are now blooming, mainly a mix of white and yellow with the occasional splash of red. This time the white daises are not the large Oxeye Daisy, but those of the more delicate Scentless Mayweed. Alongside them the clear yellow/gold of Corn Marigold contrasts with the occasional Poppy and Cornflower that complete the trio of cornfield annuals that have all but disappeared from our fields.
Blooming July 28
Main Wildflower Area August 5
Elsewhere on the wildflower area Teasel are now in full bloom, much stronger this year than last, and providing a feast for Bumblebees and Hoverflies.
