27 HOGweed

Many thanks to my sponsor
Graduate Landscapes.

HOGweed has been inspired by their wonderful wildflower meadows and the birds, mammals and insects that inhabit them.

Gardeners use Latin for the flower names so it was fun to include Latin and common names. The Latin quote - VITA MUSIS GRATIOR -
(Life is better through the Arts)
is from the Haslemere Crest and seemed so appropriate. I had to add some Hazel for Haslemere and of course the slightly controversial Hogweed:)
