the sun has come out, the temperature has risen and the swallows have returned.

l know that the photo is not exactly sunflowers in the Langedoc, but extra virgin cold pressed rape seed oil is rather nice!

Westerwitch's Avatar Lovely colour and we have our daffodils actually started to break out into bud - plus it is milder here now.

Pipany's Avatar Huh, rain, rain, rain.... still, maybe it will come our way Very Happy

(PS WW - daffys? On to rhododendrons, tulips and forget-me-nots, not smug - honest!) xx

Exmoorjane's Avatar Ah tulips, yes. Those that looked smart and pert in the pictures last autumn look gaudy in the flesh. The rather stunning looking fringed jobs look tarty in a rather shocking bubblegum pink. I never get tulips right. Though some soft pink ones look fab with swathes of forget-me-nots that nearly got pulled up as weeds earlier on. Bluebells appearing too but the rhodies are clenched tight shut.

Ermmm, Oil seed rape in flower in the Languedoc now. Sunflowers are much later

The rapeseed is such a such a sunny yellow. We have blue skies and sunshine but a cool wind. Saw the first housemartin yesterday, sadly no swallows sighted yet.

Muddyboots's Avatar miss p, l do know my sunflowers from my oil seed rape, and after seeing such wonderful photos of sallyschateau's sunflowers last year, all l can offer is this showy member of the brassica family that is flowery all over europe at the moment!
