a field of rapeseed


I noticed this field of rapeseed on my way to work a week ago.  So last Sunday morning I parked the car off the road and wondered around the field, getting a few shots.  It was still quite early and the rain drops from the night before had not evaporated yet from the leaves._MG_0278




new life.

it’s been a beautiful weekend. Pretty warm for March – no rain and lots of blue sky. This morning it looked so good we went for a 3 mile walk just after 7am. Many of the trees in the gardens around us are starting to bloom. The birds were singing interrupted by only the occasional car.



There are also some surviving blooms indoors (thanks to M+S) in the hall from mother’s day – they are in a smaller vase now as they have been cut back and some have been discarded. They have done “what it said on the tin” which was guaranteed blooms for 7 days.
