You can’t see it very well in the picture, but this is a meadow field of white, pink and purple flowers leading down to a lake.
Very pretty indeed and it was a pleasure to come across when i was out cycling yesterday.
Mrs B tells me they are called ‘Cosmos’ flowers and quite a few meadows and fields have suddenly appeared filled with these flowers in the region.
It’s even more surprising given that it is now October, and last night we had the first frost of the year.
But this year is a funny one for flowers, and there are still fields of sunflowers waiting to be harvested, and it is less than a fortnight since I actually saw a field of sunflowers in bloom – a good two or three months later than usual!
It seems likely the flowering meadows are due to some kind of ‘local action’ by farmers and local councils but I’m not sure who picks up the bill (if there is one) – but full marks to whoever it is!
