Rosedale's Wildflower Church yard
Enjoyed a Sunday stroll around Rosedale's Church Yard noting the different wildflowers. The Church yard is a little bit of wilderness in this heavily grazed landscape. It has enjoyed protection as a conservation area for many years and the mowing has ceased on a great swathe of the oldest part of the graveyard. The grass and wildflowers are left uncut until late July - mid August. Whats growing in there is a delight to see amongst the headstones (The earliest one I've found so far dates back to 1721) . We took a tour with my mother in law who had yet to be convinced of the full benefit of the no mow policy, and I like to think she was persuaded.
