Autumn Wildflowers or a Claude Monet Painting In Motion?
Video: One of the most extraordinary new wildflower meadows begs some artistic questions.
Recently we visited one of the most beautiful new wildflower meadows at Aune Valley just a few miles from some of LettsSafari’s safari parks in southwest England. The video above captures it - and it inspired us to get out there and photograph wildflowers in the Autumn - at our safari parks and gardens and in other places. After all it has been a very warm Autumn!
There’s something about the moody Autumn light illuminating wildflower - living and dead. Stems and heads become miniature natural sculptures.
Indeed, wildflowers this time of year yield to a natural artistic feel. Providing an uplifting follow-on from summer.
Aune Valley’s meadow is almost like a Claude Monet painting from the wild pastures that surrounded Giverny.
Other wildflower meadows are more like a Van Gogh vase?
But then the Robert Marshall MRSS installation at LettsSafari’s Exeter Capability Brown gardens are a current tribute to the magic and beauty of wild flowers.
In our rewilded safari parks rods of foxglove attract the later pollinators still buzzing about at LettsSafari.
Mind you a picture can tell a thousand words. Thank you Van Gogh (in real life)!
