Wonderful to meet Jenny Bell at the Westmorland Show... she hand paints beautiful wildflower ceramics and we now have a lovely collection for the Roundhouse! #madeinengland #handmade #northernart #art #ceramics #beautiful #wildflowers #nature #wildlife #wildflowermeadows #englishcountryside #britishcountryside #butterflies #artist #britishartist
All of this...is going to be more wildflowers next year. A little piece of heaven on earth...minus the bugs 😂 #ctweddingphotographer #ctwildflowers #wildflowermeadows
Behind the scenes..... Not many people get to meet a proper real life rake maker... But here in the costume department we meet and clothe everyone! Here is Mr Steve Tomlin... Find him at the agricultural show from now until Sunday... Ask him about how important scythes and rakes were and still are, particularly for wildflower meadows...He's the expert... @stevetomlincrafts #traditionalruralcrafts #wildflowermeadows #costumebeamish #beamishcostume #ruralcrafts #neengland #conservation
Found this rather charming Small Copper Butterfly visiting Sedum flowers in one of our clients gardens. Apparently a fan or Rumex species as caterpillar food plants. Nice, therefore, to know that the recently created wildflower meadow, converted from a sterile arable field, is providing new habitat for beautiful wildlife. If only we all thought to create/maintain some wild places, then we would find less species in dramatic decline. Taylor Tripp will continue to try and do its bit for the environment as well as creating beautiful human habitats! #smallcopper #smallcopperbutterfly #createwildlifehabitat #createwildspace #helpwildlife #smallacorns #environmentaldesign #roomforwildlife #natureisgoodforthesoul #beautifulcreatures #butterflies #protectbutterflies #everylittlehelps #landcapedesign #englishlandscapes #englishgardens #countrygardens #wildflowermeadows #landscapelife #taylortrippltd

First fall mani!! And I plan on making a series out of these! Which I’ve never done before but I thought it would be kinda fun. 🤷🏻‍♀️ So here’s the first of four that’ll I’ll be doing!! Cross my fingers that all turn out as gorgeous as this one did!! My bases are ‘Snowy Owl’ & ‘Wildflower Meadows’ @nightowllacquer and I stamped with ‘Liquid Leather’ @chinaglazeofficial using one of my new @linanailartsupplies ‘Autumn 2’ that I picked up from @lanternandwren My first official fall themed plate!! I cannot wait to use it again and again!!
Happy #NationalWildlifeDay ! Did you know that #wildflowermeadows are one of the most effective ways to create #habitats for our fellow #bees , #bugs and #birds ?! #wildflower #wildflowers #wildlifeday #wildlife
Morning job today, stacking the grass I scythed yesterday. #haymaking #wildflowermeadows
Our wildflower headland experiment coming along nicely thanks to advice and seed from Ian at Cotswoldseeds.com - you need to get on instagram! #wildflowerwalks #wildflowerrides #wildflowermeadows #birds +bees #natural #wellbeing
Wild parsnip - Pastinaca sativa // The deep, rich smell of these roots is magnificent. Though the root is edible and similar to cultivated parsnip, take caution when picking as the sap from the above ground parts is toxic and can create photosensitivity = blistering of the skin in sunlight. A member of the Apiaceae family, a firm ID is essential and eat to taste not to fill.

We managed to go hiking the day the smoke arrived and even still it was amazing. The smoke was so thick we could taste it and could not see mountain ranges all around us. We started at the bottom of this fairy tale meadow which was overflowing with wildflowers and a creek running down the middle and made our way to the top right beyond those peaks all the while the smoke thickened throughout the day. Now that the smoke is finally clearing out im excited to do it again. #Hiddenlake #Northcascades #nationalforest #GoExplore #smokeinwashington #wildflowermeadows #hiking #hazeytreetops

A cheeky video about using the Fiskars Xact weed puller. Filled with double entendres, suggestive smut and deep roots. 😉. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnqJd0GbZlM&t=136s #smutty #weeds #roots #garden #gardening #plants #flowers #trees #shrubs #horticulture #ponds #wildlifeponds #amphibians #insects #bees #butterflies #pollinators #workwithnature #gardeninharmony #wildflowers #wildflowermeadows #wildlifegardens #wildernesstamed
A few weeks ago in the backcountry of the Absaroka Mountains on a hike with my guy and pup. Not a bad view, eh? #ourpubliclands #keepitpublic #wildflowermeadows #mountainmagic #hikingwithmyguy #hikingwithmypup #getoutandenjoy #getoutdoors #enjoytheview #enjoylife
😆😆 new additions to my pandora collection ahhh I'm so happy to have these new charms, a safety chain and bracelet. Good thing for pandora promos 🤣 Babe knows how much I love pandora and always manages to surprise me 🤪😝 He got me the wildflower meadow safety chain, along with the bracelet(apart of the promo), the two letter charms representing me and him, and piglet. 😍💕 I didn't like the enchanted heart clip with the design of the bracelet so we didn't end up getting that. #latepost #yesterday #happytuesday #jewelry #surprise #pandora #pandorajewelry #charms #letters #pandoradisney #pandorasafetychain #wildflowermeadows #pandoraaddict #pandoralover #callmecrazy 🤪 hehe #jotd #igdaily #instaglam 💖💖 "Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress." (Isaiah 33:2) #qotd #bibleverse #Godbless 😇 Anyone else also a pandora collector? 😆😉💕

Six Spot Burnet Moth. I found this beautiful Burnet Moth near my studio resting on a black knapweed head. I want to celebrate moths in all their incredible diversity, they are truly beautiful. Its food plant is Bird's Foot Trefoil, which I'm planning to plant in our meadow so we can help conserve more colonies. #andyjarrettsculptor #diversity #conservation #kindness #gentleness #caring #lookingclosley #beauty #inspiration #joy #happiness #amazingmoths #moths #rocklandstmary #norfolk #wildflowermeadows #beingkind #fragile #fragility #happytoseeyou
Sowing yellow rattle and other wildflower seeds on our field, collected from Sprint Mill's amazing flower rich hay fields. We raked over 6 patches in the area of the field that will be grazing/hay, until we had some bare earth, then sowed the seed and trod it in. Hope to see the difference next year!
Stage two of the summer hay cut at the Valency Valley in Boscastle. The volunteers worked really hard today shifting hay, shame there was no cider involved!! This process of removing the hay reduces nutrient input and helps move seeds about the site, encouraging a diverse mix of plant life to develop in the meadows. The next stage would be to carry out some aftermath grazing, but due to the nature of the site we will have replicate that with a winter cut. However, until then our forks can be hung up to rest! #hay #hayrake #bringinginthehay #meadows #farmtraditions #extensiveagriculture #makingspacefornature #wildflowermeadows #grasslands #workinghard #boscastle #valencyvalley #northcornwall #nationaltrust #volunteers
We're surrounded by sunflowers at the moment. I took this pic at sunset this evening. Our neighbour has planted a beautiful wildflower meadow in a field where the crops failed. Ironically given the current drought, they failed due to the spring floods. 🌻 Love a good sunset. One thing you can say for the fens is they do them well. 🌄 #sunset #sunflower #wildflower #wildflowermeadow #wildflowermeadows #cambridgeshire #cambs #canbridgeshirefens #fen #fenland ##uk #uktravel #traveluk #visituk #visitcambridgeshire #visitcambridgeofficial #fenlandbeauty #govisitbritain
Grass Snake in our meadow. celebrating our beautiful reptiles, I love finding grass snakes and they are always very beautiful and passive, I always feel priviledged when seeing one. #andyjarrettsculptor #wildflowermeadows #fragilegrasslands #grasssnake #fragility #ecology #beauty #wearesolucky #enjoyingwhatwehave #celebratelife #thanks #inspired #interconnectedness

The variety of invertebrates in the wildflowers meadows on site is seemingly never ending!

First rain in over two months. Happy gardener! So we missed the blood 🌓 and lunar eclipse because of the ☁️. Statistically more rain falls round a full moon cycle so this time I didn’t mind. #happy #smile #rain #moon #eclipse #bloodmooneclipse #plantsarewatered #plants #plantsofinstagram #waterbutt #raisedgardenbeds #compost #vegetables #fruit #glasshouse #workwithnature #gardeninharmony #wildflowers #wildflowermeadows #wildlifegardens #wildernesstamed
Crazy Happy Bees in the Thistle...neon magenta, yippee! Pumpkin patch, Dalia’s & herbs too! #walledgarden #busybees #happybees #wildflowermeadows #lovemamanature #gaia
Start with compost. Compost improves the soil adding nutrients, bulk, moisture and organic matter. It also provides habitat for masses of invertebrates and soil microbes. Raised beds mean you can create the exact medium your vegetables and fruits desire. Plus it saves your back. #nodiggarden #raisedgardenbeds #compost #composting #soil #garden #gardening #plants #flowers #trees #shrubs #horticulture #ponds #wildlifeponds #amphibians #insects #bees #butterflies #pollinators #workwithnature #gardeninharmony #wildflowers #wildflowermeadows #wildlifegardens #wildernesstamed
