The wet May and lots of recent sun and heat has brought the colour of June to us. The yellows, blues and whites of spring have now been joined by the likes of the blues of the cornflowers, the reds, orange and pinks of poppies, the red white and pinks of campion and the related and the wonderfully delicate ragged-robin which has sprung up near the spring in the Longfield meadows.
Judging by the buds that have not yet opened, there is lots more still to come. And this year there were no wild flower sowings in the meadows after rotavation (hence no planting lists, unlike the previous two years). Nature has managed this without much of our help this year and it has not let us down.
