The Pottery House Meadow




It's long been our wish to create a wild flower meadow in the garden and so last Spring we cleared aand dug a large section of lawn and plated wild flower seeds.

The results where somewaht disappointing, however this year it's looking much more as we planned.

There is a wide range of grasses growing in the meadow, but at last a few wild flowers are starting to appear, like poppies, daisies and buttercup. Hopefully these will seed and spread.

However this chap already appears pleased with the progress of the wild area, he was very happy sitting in the damp wet grass.
