I was out looking for something suitable for the November photo competition at the weekend and was bowled over when, at different places, I saw white campion, dog daisies and harebell still flowering. They should have gone over ages ago as we had already had a couple of frosty nights. Nature is amazing.
I also meant to post a while ago about my musings over yellow and nature. Right through the spring, summer and autumn there has always been a yellow flower of some sort. Starting with the gorse, broom, dandelions, primroses, buttercups, bird's foot trefoil, stonecrop, celandines, yellow rattle, horseshoe vetch, irises, corn marigold, sow thistle and ragwort which is still in flower in some fields. I am sure I have missed quite a few and some I don't know but no other colour is as predominant in wild flowers as yellow as far as I am concerned. As you probably have gathered I spend quite a bit of time just admiring nature and am often to be seen parked up away out in the country just enjoying the sounds, sights and smells of nature.
