Over the field, not far away, it's looking very yellow today

I had a busy day in the garden all day yesterday so today has been a lazy day, sitting in the garden enjoying the results of yesterday's hard work, the lovely sunshine, stitching and listening to my audio book.  It's been a scorcher today and I wasn't going to go for a walk but I talked myself around to it late afternoon.

Standing in this field, to the right is the view of the rapeseed field, in front of me, in the dip, are hundreds and hundreds of buttercups

The rapeseed in the distance

 Beautiful buttercups.

Starlings gathering and making such a racket

I have some buttercups growing at the top of my garden, I know they are technically a weed, but they are so cheerful, I couldn't bring myself to pull them out.

I see this little white flower along the hedgerows a lot, does anyone know what it is?

A perfect dandelion puff, another unwelcome weed in the garden but so pretty to look at

I took the longer route back down the lane and past the rapeseed field

I recorded over 9,000 steps in the end, not bad considering I wasn't going on a walk today.

Take care

it's so easy to walk further these days, the weather and the emerging crops and wild flowers are so beautiful.

I was promising myself a walk all day but I just couldn't muster the energy in the heat, even when it got to evening it was still so oppressive. The rapeseed fields are so pretty but they spell agony for hayfever sufferers. I used to suffer terribly as a child but I grew out of it somewhat after having children but I've had a few bouts this year already, I'm not surprised given the beautiful spring we've had. I think your little white flower may be greater stitchwort.

Well done, a great many steps even though you didn't want to go in the beginning. What a stunning area you have so close to home.

Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
