Coming Home From The Allotment


At last! Spring has arrived. Or perhaps I shouldn’t tempt fate by proclaiming it. Anyway, after freezing wind and deluges, here’s the proof of brightness, photo taken two evenings ago. You can see Windmill Hill in the distance. And as for Townsend Meadow and this fluffy looking crop – this year the over-wintered plants that I took for wheat, have recently transformed into barley, their feathery top-knots tall and shimmering in the sunshine. I am in love with the field – the way the light dances over it.



Lens-Artists: blue and green

This week Tina asks us to find inspiration in blue and green. Please go and view her (as ever) stunning work.

  1. Spring at last! And now almost summer. I do hope we have a spell of decent warm weather, I think we need some. It can rain during the night so the plants are happy too.

  2. I know exactly what you mean by the light “dancing over” the field. I’ve noticed that myself although I wouldn’t have described it as poetically! Wonderful blues and greens – welcome spring indeed!

  3. I love a barley field, with every little touch of breeze making the fronds dance! And yes, it does feel as if spring has finally arrived 🙂
