Rapeseed field in full bloom.
It is not lost on me that I happen to be in England at a very lovely time of year. At the beginning of a Frommers travel guide you can read some opinions about the best time of year to visit a country. This trip came upon me so fast that I did not have time to investigate what Frommers had to say about it... but I would say that it is perfect timing.
The daffodils has been at their peak of blooming, and there are a lot of them to enjoy. In southern England where I ventured over the weekend, it wasn't uncommon to see whole sections of yards & fields covered in them.
Not only were the daffodils in bloom, but the rapeseed fields were in full bloom. When we made the drive to Bampton, I quickly lost count of the bright yellow fields that covered the countryside. I was told that in America we were not fond of the word "rapeseed" so we call it canola instead. The end market product from these glowing fields is CANOLA OIL.
