yellow


Driving home this morning from a long weekend with family the predominant colour was the yellow of oil seed rape fields shouting out their presence.


It's brash and bright in its mono-cultural state in these fields and really quite a contrast to the more subtle colours we came across on our woodland walk the other day.


This time of year, when the hedges
are full of cow parsley and may blossom, has to be my very favorite time. And when you look closely there are stitchwort, red campion, dandelions, bluebells...


I've had a lovely break with some of the best company one could ask for and we've had such lovely weather. But enough of all that relaxing stuff: I have so much work to do.
