New project: The roadside verge

I’m starting a new project this month, based on the roadside verge. A lane passes north and south through our village and I’m concentrating on a half mile each way. Not just the flowers but anything I find interesting connected with the verge.
The aim is to build up a body of work in both colour and black and white that reflects all aspects of these important strips of nature alongside the tarmac.

Hopefully I can address some of the following questions.

Is there a good range of wildflowers and grasses?

How often is it cut during a year?

What do the hedgerows contribute?

What effect does the abutting fields have on the verge?

Here’s  the first photos taken last week.

All photos taken using a variety of Fujinon and vintage Olympus/Pentax lenses on my Fujifilm X-T2 digital camera.
