Wild flowers on Dukes Avenue

The usual approach that Councils have taken to brightening up odd grassy areas has been to plant daffodils. This is reasonable but they are quite short lived and as every Council does this there is a splurge of yellow for a few weeks and then nothing for the rest of this year.

So it was a very pleasant surprise to find the Richmond Council had planted some wild flowers on the triangle of grass on the junction between Dukes Avenue and Craig Road.

The picture at the top is looking north-west towards Craig Road and the one above is looking the other way long Dukes Avenue. The grass is struggling a little in the warm dry Summer but the flowers look magnificent.

And they look even better when you get up-close to them.
