This year, Saturday 6th July, is the National Meadows Day, to remind us of the importance and pleasure of fields full of wild flowers. http://www.magnificentmeadows.org.uk/celebrating-meadows/national-meadows-day
Recently we were urged also to let wild flowers flourish on our lawns to provide nourishment for insects and especially bees. So many people think they should use weed- killers and fertilizers to produce a perfect pure grass lawn, but more pleasure and interest can be found by letting some wild flowers grow. Here I have allowed a large patch of white clover to flower.
It’s very attractive and the bees love it.
