The Meadow

The first of these photographs was taken about three weeks ago: the second, earlier this week in the same meadow.  Most of the flowers have gone; most of the seeds dispersed leaving, to my eyes, a delightful abstract pattern.  In just a few weeks this same field will be teeming with buttercups and a few weeks later will be full of flowering grasses, ready to be mown for hay.  It is a natural meadow  –  no artificial fertilizers here  – and has belonged to the same family for more than two centuries  But now there is a cloud on the horizon and its future is unsure.
