Travel Theme – Gaudy

09 Feb

Ailsa from Where’s my back pack? Has a great travel theme this week, Gaudy! Just the thing to brighten up the gloom.  Since the snow thawed out we have had rain and gloom, not very inspiring for photos so I am raiding the archives for something brighter!


Like this field of Rapeseed, I remember the fields before the farmers started growing this crop. The colours were either the green unripe crops, the golden wheat or the muddy ploughed fields. The addition of this bright yellow crop makes the countryside gaudy!


Splendidly gaudy Azaleas and Rhododendrons along a pathway at Leonardslee Gardens in West Sussex.

This contribution to Ailsa’s theme is superbly gaudy!

    Beautiful photos! I remember seeing fields of rapeseed when we were in England several years ago. Love the colors. And thanks for visiting my blog and giving a post a like!
