So there's no use for Fort Orchid, this time around.
No, this time there's a whole border of wildflower seed to worry about. A veritable magnet for dust-bathing Sparrows, cat scat and the feathered vacuum cleaners that are Wood Pigeons. This year the defence architect had to think big. How big?
Castle Cornflower big.
Obviously, apart from 6 square metres of galvanised wire, there's not much to see at the moment. However I did spend a happy hour, sifting through the seed mix to identify the 9 species of annual flowers it contained.
