Fields of wild flowers all for the taking

As we are seeing out a rubbish summer weatherwise and autumn begins on the 1st September, we had one last sunny Saturday of summer this weekend. It was the perfect time to drive out to Selinevej on Amager to visit the much Instagrammed wild flower field.Copenhagen Kommune is preparing the area for the creation of a city forest (Byskov) and they have planted acres of wild flowers which help prepare the soil for the forest. The very pleasant by-product of this is the wonderful wildflowers which you can pick as many as you can carry.Many of the flowers had been picked but there were still a lot to pick and they will continue flowering for a while longer. You can find the meadow at the end of Selinevej, up a gravel slope or follow the other people walking and cycling down here as there is very few other reasons to be there. This article can help you pin point the spot and also read more about the project (it is in Danish).
