Wildflower Wednesday – Chenopodiums – Goosefoot in Autumn Colours

Chenopodiums - Goosefoot

Chenopodiums – Goosefoot

One of our local dog walks runs along the edge of farmer’s fields. There are few wildflowers along this agricultural route and the fields are regularly sown with oil seed rape, chemicals are sprayed on the crop. Last winter the farmer stored on one corner of his fields a vast pile of manure, muck, slurry, something dark. It was subsequently spread on the fields and the crop this year, wheat. Goosefoot, Grasses and Orache, have sprung up where the vast muck heap once stood.

I am linking in with Gail at Clay and Limestone for her monthly wildflower Wednesday meme. Please take a look at other wildflower contributors from across the globe.
