A boon for our wildlife
What a delight our verges and hedgerows have been this year – a great profusion of colourful wild flowers providing much needed habitat for insects.
These in turn give food for our birds, who need all the help they can get.
I cannot understand why so many people seem to have a desire for cutting and manicuring to create sterile areas which support no wildlife.
Please have a thought for all the living things we share our environment with.
If wonderful gardens like Rosemoor and Marwood can let their wildflowers grow, then so should we all.
