But, it is Easter – and on cue the Pasque Flowers are blooming on the Devil's Dyke near Newmarket. They are pretty rare in Britain and only grow in the wild in 19 sites, we went for a stroll along the high banks of the dyke the other evening just to check out how they're doing this year.
So, this amazing hot, dry and sunny weather has brought out the Oil Seed Rape flowers and wooo! the land turns yellow! I know lots of you loathe this garish stuff, but I rather like the drama of it . . . here's a view across the rolling field of 'High Suffolk', just east of were I live. We went for a lovely walk here yesterday evening as the temperatures started to fall, we're checking out footpaths for Cliff's next 15 mile route for the local walking group.
We found some beautiful tracks, some with big views and others through cool meadows spangled with Dandelion clocks in the evening sunshine.
Have a lovely day tomorrow, whatever you have planned. I'm not sure what we'll be doing, but I've just baked a cake . . . I'm sure we'll eat some it ;-)
