I read recently that the acreage of oil-seed rape grown in the UK, which has been increasing year on year, rose by 17% in 2007. A recent walk near Folkingham in Lincolnshire left clothes spotted with yellow pollen and provoked more than a few sneezes!

Great colors you have there Tony. An interesting and appropriate quote too. Where do you find them?

Thanks Anton. Glad you like the shot. I have a couple of books of quotations, and use the internet if I draw a blank there. Every now and then I pop in one that I dredge up from the memory banks!
