The Meadow is located where the walk from the Circle of Friends terminates on the south side. When I first saw this area I knew this would be where I could try “The English Thing’ with naturalized bulbs.
Since the foliage of the bulbs must be allowed to mature and the wildflowers must be allowed to ripen their seed, no mowing is allowed. Voila… a MEADOW!
Totally delightful, easily sustainable, pollinator friendly …. a gift for living away from the city. I wish you could smell it after it gets it annual haircut.
Daffodils (Narcissus) in early spring followed by Woodland Phlox (Phlox divaricata) and Trilliums (Trillium cuneatum), and NOW Spider lilies (lycoris radiata)!!

Trilliums are among the rare flowers that can make my heart go pitter-patter. There’s a magic about each of the various species and forms.
Dear Sandra, Oh to be able to naturalise Trilliums. That definitely makes a meadow which is a cut above the rest!!
Beautiful! This post made us miss Spring for a minute… but we’re still happy it’s fall 🙂
I am sure the meadow does smell wonderful after it gets its annual haircut. How pretty it must be when the bulbs emerge in spring.
