When I walked across the neighbour’s field the other day, it was almost waist-deep in spring flowers: poppies, wild lupins, hawkweed, oxeye daisies, little purple vetches… The brightest of all were these golden blooms which were glorious from a distance, but not so nice up close as nearly every one harboured some kind of bug-eyed monster.
(Incidentally, I’m beginning to think I should change the blog tag-line to “Mostly first person poetry, prose, pedantry and plant pictures.”)

Hi Gwyneth Uplifting picture to start the day – summer is almost here! Sylvia http://www.sylviakent.blogspot.com
Wordpress got over-enthusiastic and filtered your comment as spam – presumably because of the link in it. Sorry. Glad you liked the bug (or perhaps it was the flower?!) So many flowers in the fields round here at the moment. And we’ve had so much rain this spring that the grasses are shoulder high. Now – a week after the picture was taken – it’s actually too hot to be outside in the afternoon sunshine.
Really nice website here like it.
The weeds aren’t Philippine roses, but they’re pretty all the same!
