Wild Flowers

I'd been wondering at the start of the year, why our Council had left quite a number of the flower beds round the area, without any plants. I thought it was because they were cutting back because of the economic situation. But I'm pleased to report this is why

It's amazing how high some of the flowers have grown

Although the beds looked bare, and there was no weeding done in spring, and at the start of the summer. It now seems a win win situation, as the wildlife has really benifited from all the wild flowers in the area, and costs have been reduced.


If I can make somebody smile, my day has been worthwhile

WOW Those are beautiful beds, so much colour and a lovely selection of wild flowers, I can spot cornflowers and poppies, but am not brilliant on wild flowers, so much better for the wildlife than bedding plants. Well done to the council, what a really brilliant idea.

The great thing is you don't have to weed the beds either.

Thanks for sharing those photos WS.

How wonderful is that WS, a brilliant idea and the flower beds look gorgeous. Well done to the council and I bet you see so many butterflys and bees etc in amongst those flowers, as you say, a win win situation. Wouldn't it be lovely if more councils did that with the flower beds.
Great pics WS
