The Meadow; An English Meadow Through the Seasons
The traditional hay meadows of Britain abound with visual delights. Hundreds of plant species and mesmeric mixtures of colour are interspersed with tumbling butterflies, stooping dragonflies and the flight of birds. In Clattinger Farm, probably the finest remaining example in Britain, orchids create vast carpets whilst nightingales sing night time melodies from heavy blackthorn hedgerows.
This title takes you on a journey through the forms, colours and patterns of this precious place. The result of recording the changing seasons for over three years, it reveals an astonishing diversity of species. Includes short and informative texts on orchids, fritillaries, birds, insects, seeds and maintenance.
