Wildflowers Rule

There's a field across the lane from our house which at the moment is a total riot of beautiful wildlflowers. The colours are quite incredible and each time I walk through it I have to pinch myself to make sure they are actually real and not some elaborate landscape art installation. Buttercups cloak most of the field, extreme golden yellow, interspersed among them are speedwell and campion, in various shades of blue, purple and pink with bluebells fringing the edges as well as white spanish bluebells and a mixed strain of the two which manifest themselves as bright pink.

I aim to get some photos uploaded here and am toying with the idea of an impressionistic painting to preserve the scene for posterity (or at least until next spring when appear all over again)
