11.09.23: Wildflowers are blooming at last.

Back in May EDDC ‘ploughed up’ wide areas of grass along  the Exeter Road  just as you approach  Exmouth and  in the residential area of Brixington. They then sowed mixtures of perennials, wild flowers and annuals. In the  9 weeks of drought  that followed  the soil completely dried and the only green  plants that survived  were dandelions. Complaints were many as you can imagine. However…. August’s rain showers have done the trick  and just look at the two areas now. Exeter Road a vision of gold and white and  Brixington  mainly red, white and blue  with splashes of yellow.  WOW Hopefully good management of these  areas will follow and we will have these wonderful wild flowers zones for years to come.
