I’ve started taking down the meadow (or front lawn) this week, which drives home the turning of the seasons. It’s been a mixed success this year, with it becoming dominated by yarrow. On the plus side, I’ve seen a frog hiding in there, and the local hedgehogs have been happy to go hunting in it. I plan to try again next year, but with significantly more yellow rattle planted, to keep down the grass.
I doubt I’ll be ready to write up what I’ve done this week, as work is busy at the moment. In any event, there will be another compilation of the stories shared by people following @BotanyOne
on Twitter with you the same time next week.
Until then, take care.
