#114 In praise of Spring meadows

Two images today that show just how colourful our meadows can be at this time of year. Firstly, the cowslips at the Dorset Wildlife Trust HQ, Brooklands farm meadow are putting on quite a show:

Further down the slope, the Green winged orchids are starting to get their act together as well, providing a splash of purple amongst the greens and the yellows..

Not bad for a meadow that is still relatively young..  It’s all down to good management of course!
