Park Nab

A sunny evening after a day of rain.

This is one of a pair of blue fields flanking Green Gate Lane, better known as the Little Kildale road.

The crop is Lacy phacelia or Blue tansy. The photograph has actually rendered the colour less blue than I remember. I am a bit disappointed. Must be something to do with the evening light.

The plant is native to Mexico and the dry southern USA and is grown as green manure, to be ploughed back into the soil. In the meantime, it’s good for bees and other pollinators.

In the background is Park Nab, a popular climbing venue.
