Description

To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation, HRH The Prince of Wales called for the creation of new wildflower meadows.

The Coronation Meadows project, led by Plantlife and in partnership with The Wildlife Trusts and the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, is working to achieve this goal, and in this book renowned photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas captures the extraordinary results of this important conservation project. Wildflowers for the Queen is a captivating photographic celebration of the vast array of Coronation Meadows now found across Britain, with stunning studio portraits highlighting the diversity of wildflower species, from the colourful cowslip to the eccentric snake’s-head fritillary, from the multifaceted ragged robin to the elusive bee orchid. Rittson Thomas takes us on a remarkable journey through some of the most beautiful wildflower meadows, from the Viking meadows of Muker in Yorkshire’s rolling dales to the unique culm grass meadows of Cornwall.

Rittson Thomas also photographs a wide range of rare wild orchids, including the monkey, bee, man and lady orchids, encouraging us to discover the rich botanical heritage of the wildflowers and unique meadows of Great Britain.
