Britain turns yellow and gold

Sunday 23 June 2013

From North to South, East to West, Britain on a glorious Summer's day is an absolute joy! Whether travelling the countryside on foot, by car, bus or train a wonderful view is never far away. I showcased a little of the variety in rich colours you can see in the Rainbow Britain post previously. I thought it would be nice to concentrate here on one of the colours. A colour that is very much in season and abound everywhere. The colour of happiness - yellow.

It is hard to escape it and it is wonderful to see. Swathes of yellow fields of rapeseed and buttercups. Wheatfields growing and the busyness of farmers and insects of all colours at work. Britain is far from just a green and pleasant land, it is a bounty of colourful joy, and all quietly and naturally helps to make landmarks and historical settings more magical for the visitor.
