We went to Durlston Country Park, they have wonderful wildflower meadows, each one is different. When you see the meadows it makes you realise what we have lost in this country, 98% of our meadows are lost to intensive farming. So much of farmland is monoculture and our wildlife, especially our bees, are suffering. What wildflower meadows we have left are valuable and need protection. There is a verse of Scripture I love, Luke 12: 27
‘Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these'
Solomon, in his day, had everything he could wish for (1 Kings 10:14-29) and I think the same with our modern life, with all our material possessions we have does not compare to the beauty of the natural world, it is life not things.
