The Covid 19 Flu pandemic has been written about ad nauseam, so I won’t add to it in this post. However, some of the effects of the pandemic are less obvious, such as the cutting of the grass in the local parks around Glenrothes.
I hadn’t ever noticed how often the grass was cut, until now……….
We have a park that at first glance looks like it has a slight dusting of snow on it, in the middle of July!! Admittedly, my long distance eyesight isn’t what it used to be, but it was a very different view to the normal green grass (or yellowish if we are lucky enough to have a dry spell) of this time of the year.
It turns out the white colouration is caused by clover flowers, which are normally cut before they have chance to flower.
Personally, I think they should do this every year, as the bees are having a real feast at the moment 🙂
