Linseed blue fields.

 These blue fields are quite a sight in the sunshine. They are linseed and grown as a break crop. The oil is harvested to use in paint. Also used for health foods, animal feeds and as a textile- flax. The flowers follow the sun so when we went out in the morning a shimmering blue but coming home later the fields were back to green as the flowers had closed up.

the pale blue shimmers and hangs suspended in the landscape.
