yellow flowers of the countryside

It's a beautiful day! So I went for a cycle to see if I could find some gorse to take photos of, as it's blooming everywhere now.

There were a lot of wild primulas on the sides of the road, all in a lovely pale yellow.

Also in a brighter yellow grew marsh marigolds.

Daffodils were everywhere as well, again in yellow. Seems like all the flowers I saw today were colored yellow.

Yellow daffs play peek-a-boo through a fence.

Moo! Baaaa! No flowers in this photo, but that bull was eyeing me as I went past.

This house at the side of the road had masses of daffodils!

More daffodils.. and I see some gorse in the distance.

Found a gorse behind a wall.

And finally, I found some at the side of the road!

It's so cheerfully yellow, I couldn't help but smile! It's just the richest color of yellow in the countryside during this time of year.

The bees love gorse too this time of year, or if you fancy a tipple you can use the blooms to make a beautiful golden wine.

Enchanting ride you had, how wonderful to get exercise for body and mind with all the lovely yellows. Very cute the daffs peeking our of the fence, but that has with the carpet of daffs, that was breathtaking. Thanks for sharing.
