Natural habitat

 

Only the decaying roots remain of a once proud tree.  Even so, they provide a fascinating natural habitat.  The question is ‘Who might live in a house like this?’

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.

Grass patterns

This image, of the natural patterns formed by wintering grasses, was taken from the same stretch of wayside verge as yesterday’s post, ‘Nature’s backyard’. I chose to use black and white and to black out the fussy background in order to focus on the real centre of interest, the grasses.

Nature’s backyard

On the verges beside the bridle way last year’s grasses and wild flowers, dead or decaying, frequently form interesting patterns that normally we ignore or, most often, just don’t see.
