We’ve had a busy few days here with some AirBnB guests during which time I felt I’d hardly been outside, so the sun shone this afternoon, and I just decided it was time to get out and walk.
From my study window I can see a huge field of rapeseed…. I challenged myself to go walk through it and see what it was really like.
I’m guessing here, but I presume rapeseed must be a member of the brassica family, as there was just the faintest smell of cabbage…. anyone know? And the flower head is awfully like kale that has bolted.
It is also much much taller than I thought. You know you drive past these bright gold fields, but I had not realised that the plant is actually taller than me.
I kept on walking until I could go no further and enjoyed taking photos of other plants and insects along the way.
Can summer be too far away when you see this in bloom?
It is years since I’ve seen bullrushes aren’t they such an interesting plant? It was an absolute delight to see lots and lots of ladybirds around.
This stream brought my wanderings to an end….. not very large but deeper than my boots 🙂
