Sheffielder’s have caught on to the French craze of chalking the names of wildflowers on the pavement. It becomes a talking point, educating everyone about the bio-diversity on our doorstep and helping people appreciate nature. It also shames the Council, who continue to waste our Council Tax on spraying the “weeds” with glyphosate. This Guardian article explains what’s happening. Here are some pictures from Sheffield streets. Technically this activity is unlawful so I can not advocate that you should do it. But the information is proving very helpful and interesting to those on otherwise monotonous local walks for exercise.
