I haven't taken this route for a while - and was amazed how the crop had grown - the last time I came down here this crop was showing as quite small plants - today the plants were shoulder high with me and I guess in a few weeks they will tower above - it is oil seed rape (I think) - the pollen from the flowerheads can be quite powerful- but the colour is so bright.
The dogs were excited lots of new smells and new pathways - the field had long stretches of walkway from one end to the other - made by the farmer and his tractors while cultivating the crop - so we were able to extend our walk to and fro.
Not many people about today down here - maybe they don't like the pollen from the rape - perhaps I will regret strolling through the field
The hedgerows were covered in white blackthorn blossom - one of my favourites - encouraging a few bees to stray from their flight path - but alas no butterflies perhaps it is a bit to early
Dogs were a bit muddy and so was I when we reached home - so it was time to get the dogs scrubbed up on the decking - yes a refreshing walk - bye
