From the bridge on the Beaton Road, I continued my afternoon perambulations to the Dunmore Road, where I turned left and drove slowly along it, savouring the beautiful back country of this area. The fields were alive with wildflowers, including many yellow flowers, which turned the spring-tinged hues of the grasses even yellower in aggregate. The photos on this page are of such a field along the Dunmore Road.
Photo #1 looks a bit north of east across a field that is bespattered throughout with buttercups, intermingled with daisies and red and white clover. I regret that this photo does not capture the dancing colours I saw standing there, as a gentle breeze moved the grasses and the embedded flowers to and fro.
Photo #2 is another view of the same field, but this time looking to the southeast along the road. Bees and other insects interested in the pollen of the flowers were busy this afternoon, making a buzz that was audible as I stood there admiring the beautiful scene.
