A soft ending

We ended 2015 with almost spring-like temperatures.

The feeling of a new beginning was even more accentuated by the endless fields of flowers of white mustard and fodder radish we wandered through on a nice walk on the last day of the year.

I was used to the yellow flowers in winter, but mixing it with the pink of the fodder radish flowers created an even more spring-like atmosphere.

Such a monoculture (or in this case bi-culture) of overtime the same plant is of course not too exciting for biodiversity, but the flowers can be nice for those brave insects that still fly around with these mild temperatures.

Note: I tried my best to get the names of the flowers correctly, but there are so many lookalikes (like rapeseed), so do not take my word for it just like that.
