Today on 11th January, it was dreary in the morning but developed into a sunny afternoon with luscious skies, clouds of all shades of white to greyish blue tumbling in magnificent formations. Thank goodness we are finally getting some precious rain which brought a lovely surprise overnight, a field of luminous yellow, only humble brassica or rape, not sure which but it was really cheering.
Later on my afternoon walk I found a few Linaria Spartea, just a few delicate flowers which made them more precious.
I will keep a blog commentary of newly springing flowers over the next few months until the explosion of flowers in April which are almost too many to name. For the moment I am celebrating these two humble yellow ones.
