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.
Thumbs up to our local councils for their grass-cutting policy.
