Daisies


One of my favourite flowers - the Ox-eye Daisy - is blooming in profusion in the little garden beside Saltaire's rail station. The garden, I think, actually belongs to Shipley College and seems to be planted deliberately with wild flowers. I'm not really knowledgeable about wild flowers but I think there are also Knapweed and a type of Cranesbill visible. There were some other varieties too, though you can't really see them in this view. Such a joy that wild flowers, though they've been purged in many agricultural areas, are nevertheless encouraged in some of our urban gardens.

  1. They are beautiful wold flowers and it is good to hear they are being used in gardens bit sad to hear that they have been purged from some areas.
