An image of ancient sustainability, a meadow which has renewed itself for hundreds or perhaps thousands of years, and with the lovely name of Frogmead, it suggests a damply froggy place.  I often dream of planting a wild flower meadow that will self-renew and prove a haven to hundreds or perhaps thousands of insects and small creatures. 

Frogmead would then have remained an endlessly self-renewing meadow for centuries, perhaps even for thousands of years.
