The Meadow

In my neighbourhood there is a secret meadow.
It is completely surrounded by houses apart from one small passageway.
My mum is part of the community group that has been trying to introduce wild flowers and an orchard in this space.When I was a child this used to be a fairly neglected park, it had a couple of rusty climbing frames and quite often a pile of rubbish including burnt mattresses. I hadn't been for probably 20 years so when my mum went to check on the fruit bushes growth this week I popped along too.
For a place that is completely surrounded by houses it does feel secluded and a bit secret.
