The lower castle walls studded with wildflowers and the sheep in the meadow give the Holy Island of Lindisfarne a colorful and lively surrounding.
My friend Erika planted 3 1/2 acres of wildflowers several years ago to create a summer meadow. The deer sleep in there at night. “I think the deer think we did this for them,” she commented. Perhaps the bees do too, as they are busy doing their work by day.
