Wildflower Sea

By Irishkate  
There 15 acres of these mostly corn chamomile flowers at Lost Gardens of Heligan, spoiled a little on the day with rain but my favourite part of the park. They are described as a wildflower sea on their literature.
There were a few scattered poppies and cornflower dotted throughout.
Many thanks for V&C for The Mud Maid. Interesting for those who have seen her before and how she's changed.

I think you'd need to like yellow quite a lot to walk all the way along that path.

A great view point for this lovely image, Kate.

Wildflower heaven Kate and full of insects and bees.

terrific lead into the picture, and this must be a Yellow Sea, and i love the lady in the distance, wearing a red jacket and trying to communicate with what looks like a black cow..
p.s. seriously, a well seen and beautifully taken image, dear Kate

Love the invitation to “wander” along the path! I was there a few weeks ago: missed this scene completely! But I was using a new camera and - guess what? Accidentally deleted what I took! Ah well! Good reason to return!

Looks like the flowers in the foreground have suffered a bit of a battering!!!! What a gorgeous meadow and you have managed to capture a hint of movement in this yellow "sea", very aptly named.

Quite a sight all those flowers. I like your composition Kate with the path leading towards that gap in the hills.

Golly, Kate, there's millions of them! 😁 A fine carpet of flowers, with a moody looking sky, rather like here today 👍

It does look a sea of flowers due to the vast area they cover. Good composition with the path leading you through the sea!

A wonderfully stormy looking sea of yellow, Kate - I must make another visit to this beautiful place.
