A Road Less Travelled

The Road Less Travelled

Canola Field

We celebrate the National Day of Sweden today so I figured I would show you something typical Swedish and also the Swedish colors of blue and yellow. I took these photos over the weekend. What you see here are the blooming canola fields from Årsta Säteri. The picturesque village in the background is called Stadsberga.

I use Canola oil all the time. The flowers are brilliantly yellow and pretty for photos!

Wonderful, blue and yellow, now I know where your national colors come from.

With all that beauty surrounding it, I would think this to be a road well-traveled!

Gorgeous.

You are very funny. Regarding the couple at Inverness...it was only about 90 degrees F!

I love the flow of that dirt road, Steffe. Is the canola for commercial harvest, or just growing wild?

A natural and picturesque way to celebrate your holiday.
Have a great National Day!

Congratulations!

Thanks all.

I totality agree with you kat.

Commercial. The farmer lives down the road, as does his two daughters that run one of the golf clubs in the area.
