As we’re heading out of spring and into the beginning of a nice long, hot summer (hopefully), we felt this week that it was time to celebrate three fantastic plants that have been all around us over the past month or two. Say hello to the Poppy, Daisy and Rape Seed Blossom - all together in this week’s photo of the week.
We’re seeing a lot more of daisies and poppies these days, with some landowners sowing at the edges of their fields (as in our photo), or in some cases giving whole fields over to wild flowers. Councils are seeding roundabouts and sides of the road, and slowly we have seen verges change, helping insects, birds and small mammals survive, many of which are in decline.
As well as being beautiful, the message here is two-fold. Firstly, get sowing! All you need are a few packets of seed and you can create your own oasis of colour. Secondly, grab your camera, get out there and take some pictures. Go on show us your best.
