Photo: David (Olympus Stylus)
Also known as Canola!..A nice cheerful looking plant.Thanks for this, I expect to be seeing lots very soon.Our spring was a little delayed, but we are having very summer like weather at present.
Just shows everything in life is different, you can see this with one of the trees in full leaf and the other with non.
Great clear shot of Winter Hill with those iconic masts!
Rapeseed Oil is a good alternative to Olive Oil in cooking...and its slightly cheaper!!
Does anyone still use lard?
I remember being awestruck after seeing this plant growing for the first time in the late 1960's. I do not recall seeing it before then.
It's a lovely shot and brings back memories of my Dad telling me what it was called when I was young.
I thought this section was for photos of Wigan . Which part of Wigan are Coppull and Winter hill in ? Great photo though
Coppull is part of the historic parish of Standish, Nick.
Go back to bed, Nick.
Another good shot David. Johnny, a recent study showed that cooking with vegetable oil (rape seed oil) can be dangerous and the scientist who was in charge of the study now only cooks with lard! If you wait long enough your own preference will become healthy again!!! I love to see oil seed rape but am not keen on the smell.
Thank you John (Morris) for that informative comment.
Come to think of it, our chips were cooked in lard for years!
Who remembers dripping butties?
I would like to have a go at painting this lovely scene. Do I have your permission David.
