Brassica campestris, or field cabbage,is a cruciferous plant which grows wild throughout the greater part of Europe,
and is largely cultivated in France, Switzerland and Germany for the sake of colza, as the oil from its seeds is called.
I like adding a few new photos to this gallery every year.
It’s my way to celebrate the seasonal meeting with this ephemeral yellow spring beauty,
since colza field are in flower for only a few days
and then they become quite banal greenish field of ...average high grass.
