The only thing missing from this scene is a dairy cow munching its way through the meadow, however, that would be a terrible end to the Wildflower Meadow on Druid Street. Open habitats such as wildflower meadows in urban settings provides native grasses, wildflowers and flowering plants that attract insects and other invertebrates (including butterflies, bees, spiders and millipedes), birds and mammals. Flowering species add a changing palate of colour to the urban environment throughout the seasons and can bring a little piece of countryside into the city. In 2006 this land was converted from public highway into a pedestrian route, dividing Druid Street in two and providing this new green space. The wildflower planting was introduced by Team London Bridge in partnership with CJS Plants and Southwark Council in 2015.
