Gone To Seed

Gone To Seed

South Tawton, Devon view map

Thursday 2nd October
Day 1384

Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge "Yellow"

I visited this field in 2005, when a crop of Sunflowers was being grown. Since then, nothing. By this I mean that crop was never harvested, the field has been left to rot since then. This year there is a moderate crop of sunflowers growing which has self seeded.....

Also today

For more little sunbeams, see the forum

Nikon D200 ,Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X AF Pro DX

It's definitely yellow. They look so jolly against the cloudy sky.

I'll send you over a flock of Cockatoos & Galahs, they'll clean those seeds out in no time flat.
