The pastel shades of Achillea in the orchard flower meadows.

The next flower to highlight in the park is located in the flower meadows next to the fruit orchard.  Yes, it is indeed named after Achilles, whose soldiers used the plant (yarrow) to treat their wounds.

Like the poppies, it comes in a wonderful variety of pastel colours. If you have the time, go visit the orchard and the four meadows. Each meadow is developing its own personality, probably because they do not all have the same amount of sunlight and possibly water. We are also optimistic that the somewhat unsightly fences, placed around the meadows to protect the bulbs planted there from being dug up by animals, will be coming down soon.
