Manchester Wildflowers | mikeosbornphoto

Here, in the middle of Manchester, you seek out every bit of nature – and it can flourish in the most unexpected places.

A stone’s throw from my Castlefield home is a vast, busy interchange where major thoroughfares intersect.

A central section came to life with yellow, white and pink wildflowers – a stunning sight putting nature alongside stark human creation.

Less than a mile away is a rust-colored branch of a self-storage business where alium blooms, while cow parsley grows undisturbed on an area of ​​the canal towpath.

We need wilderness more than ever, especially in our urban centres. Why mow it for the sake of cleanliness? Please share your thoughts on this below.
