If you take a break from mowing over the summer and let your grass grow longer, you may be surprised at the number of wildflowers that appear.
There were more than 10 different flowers on the verge where this photo was taken this July on Burley Lane in the centre of Quarndon village. Shown here are yarrow (white), bird's foot trefoil (yellow), and harebell (blue).
Once part of the Common , and later a meadow, the dry sandy soil of this sunny spot supports a great diversity of plant and invertebrate life.
