Langley Vale on a sunny Friday afternoon


It was too nice an afternoon to stay indoors and watch Brazil v Costa Rica, so I popped up to the farmland at Langley Vale, home to a wonderful arable flora. I didn't stay all that long and mostly checked the edge of the field where Field Gromwell (below) grows. It is still doing well, with maybe 100+ plants along the 100m section that I checked.



It is aways worth checking the fields by Nohome Farm, where a profusion of flower is almost a certainty. Today's display was dominated by Ox-eye Daisy (top).

That's just beautiful there! Dog daisy meadows!

It was some sight Simon. The photo does not do it justice.

So lucky to have flower meadows like that near you. Here on Sheppey we have at least mini-meadows this year as the council appear to have stopped cutting roadside verges and by-pass slopes, and wildlife has been enjoying the treat, although plenty of moans from the tidy brigade.

If I see a flower-filled roadside verge on a car-journey it makes the trip all the better.
