#30DaysWild Day 11 – Wild Flowers

Yesterday, for Day 11 of 30 Days Wild I took a walk around the wild flower area at the garden where I work, Chenies Manor.DSC_0091a

This was sown in March, and is around a third of an acre in total. It’s only recently come into flower, and is mostly corn chamomile at the moment, but the seed mix includes common poppy, cornflower, corn marigold and corn cockle, so it will look more colourful in a month or so.DSC_0107a

If you are visiting Chenies, the wildflowers are either side of the driveway on your way out. It should look perfect in time for the Chenies Plant Fair on 19 July.

Last summer I really enjoyed walking around the edge of the wild flowers listening and watching all the insects at work – bees, butterflies, hoverflies and many more. It’s lovely seeing it gradually come to life again this year.
