Cotswold Colours Today

Gracious today has been a visual feast in the Cotswolds.  I had to drive from Cheltenham to the market town of Moreton in Marsh along the A429.  There can be no more beautiful stretch of road in the world than this.   It is part of the ancient Roman Fosse Way.  Unfortunately, it is a single carriageway, rural road and there are very few opportunities to stop and just stare at the views.  But I managed to find a farm track where I could park to take some photos on my phone.  As I drove along, I saw fields of blue Linseed, green crops, yellow rapeseed, red poppies and golden earth.  At one point I looked over the wildflower strewn hedgerow to see 3 fields of soft blue Linseed; in the near distance there were fields of vivid yellow rapeseed; and in the far distance a startlingly red field of poppies.  The colours took my breath away.

I saw a dry stone waller at work and a thatcher and  arrived in Moreton to find the market in full flow.

  1. What a beautiful day filled with summer colours! Fields of rapeseed, or canola as we call it here, have always cheered me, and those red poppies are spectacular too. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos, and this glimpse into your brightly coloured summer day. Cheers, Gina
