  1. That yellow is so striking, not something we really see down in Cornwall, but I remember fields of rape seed from my childhood in Buckinghamshire

    • We have a lot of yellow fields around here! They look beautiful 🙂

  2. Hi Sarah, it always fascinates me why rapeseed is contained to one field. We have a small field nearby that is totally yellow in early spring. Go on. Tell me. Did you run through the field of flowers?

    • I really don’t know anything at all about rapeseed and I wouldn’t dare run through the field, but I couldn’t resist taking a photo! x

  3. AH yes, the oil seed rape has come out in force. My kids love the sight of it although as a boy it was spoken about in hushed tones by my farming family. It was an impostor, wheat should have been the chosen crop! I think times have changed a bit though, you see it everywhere these days.

    • That’s very interesting! I have wondered about it, because you see so many fields full of it, yet you don’t seem to see rapeseed oil in the shops much or in the ingredients of food! So where does it all go?!

  4. Fields of gold. There is so much of it here now. It seems to flower really early this year though. #MySundayPhoto

    • There’s loads here too! You’re right, it is quite early! I’ve taken photos of it about a month later in the past.

  5. I’m always a bit envious of people that live near rapeseed fields. I’m sure we don’t have one near us. I’m going to have to find out

    • There’s a lot near us! When I came so close to this one I thought I had to take a photo!

  7. Such a lovely sea of gold, all we’ve been seeing is fields of bluebells. I do remember my last visit to Norfolk when there were fields of gorgeous Lavender. Nature is so beautiful.

    • I haven’t seen many bluebells or much lavender, but we do have a lot of these rapeseed fields around.

  8. I love these rape seed fields, they look so pretty. We walk past some on our walk. They don’t smell as nice as they look though 🙂 x

    • I haven’t tried smelling them, I will have to have a sniff next time!

  9. Lovely shot of english countryside. I’ve been stopping off today to get pictures of rapeseed!

    • Thanks very much! I think it’s the first time I’ve taken a photo of it – just because I happened to be right next to it!

  10. Reminds me of my childhood. I lost count of the number of Oilseed Rape fields my mother stopped at to take pictures.

    The colours are so striking. Great shot.

    • That’s such a lovely memory! I didn’t think people stopped to take photos of things back in the back day before Instagram!
