Wild Orchid Summer

Wild orchid summer in Sheepdrove’s Natural Burial Wood. Every year these elegant floral spikes spread among the wildflower tangle of meadow buttercup, oxeye daisy and red clover across the woodland floor of our green burial site.

Visitors to our woodland burial ground follow nature’s changes through the seasons. From the first flowers of spring and ebullience of summer to the bronze and golden leaves of autumn and the misty winter days when birds flock to the berry-laden hedgerows that border the woodland, there is so much nature to behold and a new picture painted by every season in Sheepdrove’s Natural Burial Wood.
