If Renoir did Langley Vale Farm...

Now and again you come across a sight that demands your attention, lifts your heart and makes you thankful for the gift of the senses - please feast your eyes upon a field full of Red Campion, at Langley Vale Farm, this morning. The link between what was set out before me and the Impressionist artists is not difficult to make. And all within a half hour stroll from home - who needs to get into a car and drive off miles elsewhere when you have this on your doorstep?

There were a few more bits and pieces from today's visit, but I'll just let the show above play out for now. Too good to dilute with other stuff...


  1. Half an hour from home - so why do you go elsewhere? It looked beautiful.

  2. I've never seen a field pink with campion before! Stunning stuff.

  3. Thank you for your comments. It is one of life's pleasures to come across an unexpected mass flowering like this.
