Meadow Flowers in the Old Parish Cemetery

Meadow Flowers
Meadow Flowers

Ryde Cemetery was established on ancient meadow land and has never been subjected to the use of pesticides or herbicides, so in the summer time when the grass is allowed to grow in the Old Parish Cemetery it fills up with beautiful old English meadow flowers.

These flowers attract bugs, insects and butterflies which in turn attract birds.

It’s worth visiting the cemetery at this time of year just to see the vast range of flowers in bloom.
