Forget the TV and go visit a meadow

Chantall Ridd-Jones

What is about an English wildflower meadow that makes you want to just lie back amongst the flowers and get back to nature?

These images were taken at Houghton Mill in Cambridgeshire during a Spring Family walk and our 2 year old just couldn’t help herself. Rolling amongst the flowers and tall grasses made me realise just how little opportunity our kids get to experience places like this nowadays – and just how much they enjoy them . Forget cbeebies, the DS and the I-pad – kids needs the opportunity to just roll around in meadows and enjoy the world around them.  We need more meadows……..
