June - mowing with a scythe - Bell Sykes Meadows

The 'labour of the month' for June is frequently depicted as a figure mowing grass with a scythe, to make hay.  Lancashire's Coronation Meadow is at Bell Syke's Farm, Slaidburn within the Forest of Bowland AONB.  A variety of activities have been organised by the AONB, through the Haytime Project, including a Marvellous Meadows Day and Scything course tutored by Steve Tomlin.  So I have learnt about the grasses and wildflowers as well as drawing the mowing of the meadow.
