The Meadow??

When I drive into Sheffield, I travel through an estate that is in need of much regeneration. They have pulled a lot of the houses down over the last couple of years, and someone had the genius idea of sowing wild flowers on these patches.



I got a few funny looks when I stopped to take photographs (from the residents of the estate and also my passengers in the car!!!), but I think it looks beautiful.

Well done to the council person who had this brilliant idea.

I think it's beautiful too. So refreshing to see pastures in the place of houses for a change, rather than the other way round.

Hope you're enjoying the weekend x

Wow, I think that looks gorgeous too! I really want to create a little meadow area in our garden - not sure it is big enough though :-(

Now this is what I wanted on our side yard...not what I got, though! They are beautiful and the mix of colors is terrific! Great picture!
