Swaledale Meadows

Swaledale Wild Flower Meadow - Photography by Bevolee

It's that time of the year when the fields of Swaledale burst into bloom presenting a beautiful bouquet of wild flowers, which include Buttercup, Clover, Knapweed and Yarrow. Many tourists from all over the world visit these meadows to appreciate its wonders, but their blossom is short-lived. The flowers fade away and are then eventually cut to be transformed into hay bales around July/August as feed for the farm animals.

This photo of the meadow flowers in full bloom was taken in the field that our marquee will be set up on for our wedding day. I just hope there's good weather, not just for the wedding (we are planning for wet weather, just in case!), but also for a good yield of hay this year!
