A visit to Wichenford

Lunch over and another look at the oilseed rape. A familiar sight these days in the UK. Liked by some and loathed by others. It does have a smell of cats pee about it

Well, as I don't have a "smell-o-vision" monitor - this looks just beautiful to me!
Bill Phillips: I have just called Frank you so can you apologise to him for me.
I really like these fields, they brighten the days. Never really smelt them though....
Bill Phillips: Once smelt never forgotten E
that is a first time definition of smell for me, Bill. still a terrific shot for me.
Bill Phillips: It is not a pleasant smell but makes for colourful pictures!

It's everywhere and grew early this year. It certainly adds great colour to our countryside photography, but I do agree about the smell
Bill Phillips: Awful isn't it? Not much fun for hay fever sufferers either
I am in awe of the rapeseed fields across Europe at this time of the year, Bill. I first saw them in France...and then in England. We have smaller patches here in the Netherlands and they´re just gorgeous. I always see them from afar, however, and have no clue what they smell like!
Bill Phillips: Get closer when you have a chance Ginnie and you will soon see what I mean

I like it, adds a very temporary fresh look to the countryside.

Cats' pee - delicious!
Bill Phillips: Looks fine ...smells awful

One hopes the village is up-wind of this paddock of tomcats, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I wouldn't want to live downwind

Oh, I love the rape fields - they make good mood!
Bill Phillips: They are a very common sight these days but the smell is most unpleasant
I rather like this one Bill, unlike yesrtag's. I laughed about the smell, rather nasty isn't it. I'm not sure how much I'll miss this if we stop growing it when we have Brexiteers Euroland.
Bill Phillips: It is not nice. I wouldn't miss it but I don't mind seeing it although it has been photographed to death
It's healthier than cooking with lard.
Bill Phillips: How would you know?

C'est magnifique avec ce champ de colza.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Martine
I have this image of you running naked through the rape field.
Bill Phillips: I don't think your medication is working Michael
The OSR fields seem to be exceptionally bright this year, I wonder if our weather over the winter has been just right to produce a good crop.
Bill Phillips: Maybe so Brian. But you are right it has seemed very bright
I had never noticed it's odour, I guess. Looks nice on a field in our rolling hills but it is a later season crop here.
Bill Phillips: Oil seed rape was traditionally grown here as a break crop to suppress weeds and improve the soil and then used as a feed crop I think. Now the popularity of the oil has pushed up prices and made it more desirable to grow we see more and more of it here in the spring

Luckily my sense of smell is not good so I can't smell anything when in such a field. It is a glorious view, though, and well captured.
Bill Phillips: Mine isn't great but I can smell this stuff!

I so like your rape-seed fields, we don't have that many of these fields. We have the plants all over the place though and it is a wonderful sight.
Bill Phillips: There are a lot around here Lady P and they do add a great splash of colour
You make the smell of cat seem like a bad thing... smile
