Meadow brief

The Flowering Meadow is coming on nicely and all I have done in the last two weeks has been ….. nothing! We have had consistent rains and this has done wonders for my garden. The chickens have been a bit too happy scratching around here, so I have to keep an eagle eye on them. But here, you can see the development. I bought a Winter Mix of meadow flower seeds and scattered them all over the bald patch in my back garden under the fruit trees. I can now recognise cosmos, marigolds and alyssum …….

Well, it might not look like much now because the seedings are only about 60mm high, but I think by the end of this week, we will see a few flowers! We have had good rains and the days are warm and sunny!

Can’t wait to see the full effect! But patience is what most gardeners learn.
