Strictly, in ecological terms, and up to a point even in our daily usage, a meadow and a pasture are different things. In the meadow the grass has been sown, is manured (perhaps) and is usually cut for hay; in the pasture the grass has come into being as the rival vegetation has been nibbled off by sheep and cattle, and the grass itself is eaten as it grows. But pasture and meadow shade into one another, so 'flowers of the meadow' must include flowers of the pasture; and not being too precise, let us define a meadow simply as a place where there is, or where there should be, more grass than anything else.
