Wild flower meadow
We decided to plant up the area as you come down the drive with a traditional wild flower meadow, letting the sheep graze it in the Autumn.
The soil has been pretty wet for the last few months so we hadn't been able to do much with it but it was pretty dry today and we decided to level it out and grade it down nicely into Liams. All the apple trees were plants a couple of weeks ago. The seed is ordered and should arrive in the next week or so.
