Fields of Yellow

Fields of yellow flowers dotted the countryside over there. 

We were told they were harvested to make some kind of oil. They were beautiful and our driver was kind enough to stop and let us enjoy them up close. 

It was cold.  It was raining.  My camera was acting up. 


I was still glad we stopped.



Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses yellow flowers.


  1. They are really common here too, and they are indeed used to make oil, a mild neutral oil. We have miles and miles of yellow fields right now! Don't you have these flowers in the US?

  2. Looks like rapeseed. It's so beautiful, but the rapeseed can injure bees who become erratic and attack, hence usually locals, who know anything about bees don't go in the fields much. Of course reasonable risks are reasonable to take.

  3. Beautiful. Am praying that you will feel God carrying all of you through this difficult adjustment, with as little discomfort as possible. Have you received a diagnosis for John's upper/lower body discrepancy? Did he have polio?

  4. Great pictures, I am following your story for years now and I feel very blessed to hear and read your words. We are a German family hoping to adopt soon (conquering all the red band) from Bulgaria.
    God gives you strength for all the trench work. The plant is very common in Europe it is rapeseed or canola. Best wishes from the Kaiser family. Anja Kaiser

  5. They make canola oil from those flowers! :)

  6. We're praying for you guys as you're all making such a big adjustment. We can't wait to meet our new cousin. Love you all.

  7. Beautiful - and you would never think it was chilly or rainy.


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
