Rapeseed Riverbed

This is a picture of rapeseed flowers in full bloom on the riverbed near my house. Every year this season I am impressed with their strong living will. Because they are washed down every time it rains heavily, maybe more than once a month. After the rain is over, they gradually get up little by little and finally stand wth pride. I love their strength.

This is linking up with Mellow Yellow Monday. Come and enjoy others.


  1. Good morning, dear Annie, have a great week ...

    with your view of the rape, it must be so good, I love this sight, too, but here the rape is flowering, the glory is over ...

    greetings to you from the Geli

  2. Great perspective shot, they are pretty flowers but they give off a terrible gas which can be bad for hayfever sufferers.

  3. Very pretty!
    Have a great day!

  5. I like the story of the rapeseed...a metaphor for life!

  6. such a pretty view. a blanket of yellow flowers. a mellow yellow monday visit here.

  7. The rapeseed is beautiful! I remember when I lived in France, there were fields of these flowers and they had a very distinctive smell. :)

  8. This is a great post, Annie. These look like the mustard plants we have growing here wild. In Spring we gather the young budding shoots, blanch them and eat them with an oil and lemon dressing.
