|Description ||Silbury Hill taken from West Kennet longbarrow, August 1989.|
| is that a field of horrible stinking rapeseed, or just buttercups? probably the latter if August|
| It was the evil rapeseed i am afraid!|
| I'm one of those who loves rapeseed fields - the yellow is so cheerful and I wish the flowers lasted longer. However, I've come across many who despise it.|
| It's pretty to look at from a distance but close-up it's responsible for more URTI's than any other single plant. That's Upper Respiratory Tract Infections - mainly restricted breathing, wheezing, asthma etc. Often these reactions occur in people who have no previous chesty symptoms. |
Other pretty crops that don't have those effects are sunflowers, lavender, borage and linseed/flax.

| Ever noticed how tight theses plants grow, esp. after blooming?|
Impossible to walk through.
When you come down in a parachute in such a field.. bad luck my friend.
Unless you got a machete handy. Or a helicopter picks you up...
| you wouldn't like it if it gave you asthma attacks, and couldn't breath Angie. I personally think it should be banned.|
