We revisited Horsenden west meadows today and returned to where we saw the salsify a week or so ago. It did not let us down. From a distance you might think the meadow had just grasses, but get up close and the effect is stunning. Much better than photographs taken with a phone camera can do justice to.
It was very windy today and the combination of salsify, tall buttercups and grasses swaying in the breeze is quite hypnotic.
On the way back, on the edge of the Westway Cross retail park are colourful horse chestnuts, with Greenford road also lined with some very mature specimens.
