There’s a certain magic afoot at this time of year – the magic of nature, the magic of spring.
It seems to happen overnight, what once 3was a field of green grass is now carpeted in vibrant hues of red and yellow – crimson and gold.
Because as April’s warm winds reach our shores, a period of rapid growth occurs. It seems as if Nature explodes and the countryside dons its party clothes before the climbing temperatures withers everything that isn’t watered.
I don’t know whether it’s by chance or by design, but very often, these fields of crimson and fields of gold are found almost adjacent to each other.
The flowers which cause this pretty spectacle are the clover and the crown daisy: red and yellow; crimson and gold.
