I don’t know why but I’ve never noticed these cowslips at the side of the road before. Maybe they weren’t there before?
Lying on my stomach taking this picture, as the traffic raced around the Dorchester by-pass in Dorset, I wondered why there wasn’t a crowd of people getting out of their cars and marvelling at these cowslips. I got a few hoots from lorry drivers but that was about it.
OK, so maybe it’s just me that hasn’t seen them growing like this before. I’ve heard about them… in the good old days growing everywhere – but I’d never actually seen them (and there was me thinking I was getting old!).
Well this year I did and cars or no cars, I was determined to let their gorgeous bright yellow flowers ooze right through me.
They are certainly a great way to brighten up a dull and overcast day.
