Beautiful view. Makes me want to run through that meadow.
I know just what you mean, we walked through 10 miles of the 40 mile Ridge route on Sunday and the meadows, hedgerows and scenery were just lovely.
Ah, so lovely. Reminds me of the celandine poppies in bloom around here.
Celandine poppies are in flower here too, I really like that cheery yellow, they are a bit beefier than these Bulbous Buttercups – a field of those would be spectacular!
hi julie, i love this meadow ! here in california we have meadows of poppies and up north, bluebells. can never get enough meadows! =)
Hello, Thank you, I love meadows too, they remind me most of my childhood and that great sense of freedom. From now until the Autumn they are a wonderful sight.
So beautiful – I would love to be walking through that meadow.
I want to be able to walk through these fields and for my children and their children to enjoy them too. I can’t say this any better than they have so I am copying a quote from the wildlife trust website, who have been running a petition to save grasslands. ‘Wildlife-rich grasslands provide great benefits to society and are vital resources: for bees and other pollinators which we all rely on; for the abundance of nature which depends on wild grasses and flowers, from butterflies to barn owls; for securing soils and enabling landscapes to hold and filter water, preventing flooding and pollution; for carbon storage, and as living museums which have evolved over millennia. These beautiful and valuable habitats are vanishing – and the dazzling array of species that depend on them are under threat.’
Buttercup meadows are one of the delights of May. What a glorious sight!
Its lovely, I wish there were more.
