Country Colours

No walk this morning, as we had other things to do, but I thought we'd have a few more pictures of our recent walks around the area.
Along the old railway lines, where much improvement work has been done over the past year or so, the wild flowers are spectacular. Without a doubt, the most numerous are the Ox-eye Daisies.
In some places, they are just breathtaking...
particularly when set against a backdrop of Red Campion.
Growing tall and proud along the fence-line are several Great Mullein plants. Statuesque and beautiful, they too, make a wonderful display.
These spikes of large, yellow flowers, contrast with the grey, velvet-like hairy stems and leaves.
These flowers are popular with the bees - as well as with us!
