Nature triumphs over the dry clay -  at last Clippesby has an area where wild plants and flowers flourish freely. . .     Where have they all come from?

. . . coltsfoot, ragwort, scarlet pimpernel, daisies, ground ivy, lesser & greater willowherb. . .

                                                   the list will grow as the months go by. . .
