Meadows in May – wildflower identification event on May 20th


On Saturday May 20th we had a wildflower identification event at The Meeting House , New Road, Flaxley, GL14 1JS from 2:00PM onwards.

Last year we tried out a new scheme for learning to identify wildflowers as they actually are in late May since some may not be in full flowering mode. Rather than guided walks we  help you find them in the meadow with pictures taken just before. This approach works really well and those who have attended are very enthusiastic.
