As we come to the end of another year, I am sure this one went in a blink of an eye
I thought I would do a roundup post looking at some of my nature blogs that I have posted at my other blogging home – Birds on the Blog.
This year some of the things we have looked at are -
Well that was a heart wrenching time, when there was the heated debate about our precious woodland. With rumblings still going on in the background, it’s important for us to keep an eye on new policies being lined up for our forests.
I had the privillege of seeing a carpet of thousands of crocuses at Forde Abbey and gardens – I will be definitely be going there again next spring!
Blessed by a sea of blue in a gorgeous woodland, enjoyed and treasured by many! Can’t wait to visit again next year!
The joys of the National Garden Scheme – the NGS
A bizarre plant that doesn’t flower often and smells horrible, but still ends up being a popular plant to see.
Getting out there in the summer and enjoying what nature has in store for us.
Along the theme of my love of flowers is the language of flowers. This post looks at some suggestions for wedding anniversary ideas!
Who knew that hydrangeas were so popular. So many joined in enthusing about their love for the hydrangea
We look at suggestions of what food we can give to our feathered friends, with a couple of recipes of seed cake and fat balls thrown into the mix.
A controversial one … looking at the many benefits of Ivy for wildlife.
I hope you will enjoy the posts
Let me know which posts you particularly enjoyed!
It’s bluebell time!!!!
Can you tell I’m excited! Well I am, because I look forward to seeing this stunning flower every year!
In a mini series we looked at various businesses to see what flower would best describe them.
We looked at - A flower for Arrow light Haulage
In order to choose an appropriate flower for a business we need to look at the business objectives.
Arrow Light Haulage -
I have chosen the beautiful bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) to describe Arrow Light Haulage.
In the language of flowers the bluebell stands for 3 key aims and objectives for their business.
The bluebell is a favourite of mine, as soon as the New Year begins I look for snowdrops, then I count the days until bluebell season. I have a favourite wood near by that I simply must visit every year.
Bluebells grow and grow searching for any dappled sunlight, as the leaf coverage on trees are not at their full capacity. When the trees finally catch up, bluebells finally begin to drift off back to sleep to regain their strength for another year.
In Britain we have three types –
Bluebells flower from April – June.
The English bluebell is a delight to see, but due to the spread of the Spanish bluebell, true English bluebells are becoming quite rare.
For some recommended places to see this beauty –
Do you have a favourite place to see bluebells?
Please share with us so that our blog readers know the best places to visit.
If you want to fill your garden with bluebells, the process from seed can take a couple of years to flower; here is a video by Gardener’s World on how to grow bluebells from seed. Bulbs are available through most garden centres. Please make sure that you buy native bluebells, and that they haven’t been taken from woodland as they are a protected species.
So plan a trip to your local bluebell woods and enjoy the stunning colour and smell of the gorgeous bluebell.
Note: if you would like us to look at a flower for your business please contact us, we can provide a package of choosing a flower that best describes your business and a framed print of your flower that you can display in your office.
Please contact us for further information and we will let you know our package prices.
