A host, of golden ...

... Rapeseed
Taken just off the A96, approaching Nairn from Inverness

(after Wordsworth)

- many of the fields between Nairn and Inverness are a bright yellow at present, with crops of rapeseed; although some consider rapeseed rather garish, I think it brightens up a dull day and on a sunny afternoon such as we have today it looks even more attractive. Rapeseed has, in my opinion, a rather attractive delicate fragrance en masse; luckily I have never suffered from hay-fever so am able to enjoy Spring and summer with no adverse effects.

The view in the photograph is looking out over the Moray Firth, back toward Nairn from the Ardersier side-road, just outside Nairn.
