Wildflowers in bloom

June is the perfect month to come and see the wildflowers which are beginning to establish in the grounds of St Bride's.

Though the grounds may look a bit scruffy, they are being managed ecologically for wildlife - which isn't very keen on closely mown grass! In particular, the far corner on the Catherine Street side - by the side entrance to the church - has been kept as a wildflower area for two years now, and this year the flowers are blooming beautifully, with foxgloves - a biennial, which takes 2 years to flower - currently towering above the rest.

Three years ago the children of our FISH group at St Bride's made bug hotels which were located in the grounds, so we hope the bugs and bees are very happy with the nectar feast that the flowers are providing!
