The fabled field

I have shared this photos on facebook so I'm sorry if for some of you this isn't the first time you have seen them!



A while back my friend A, decided to go on a hunt for the fabled field in Durham. She had seen this photo of a flower covered hill overlooking the city and was determined to find it. Try as we might we couldn't seem to find the same view.

Fast forward to this weekend and the boy came to visit. I took him to our favourite walk in Durham. A place called observatory hill. To my surprise it was covered in beautiful yellow buttercups and we took a few photos there on our phones.


No sooner had I got back to college than my friend A. came running to find me asking me where the photos were taken because in her words "I had found the flower field'.
Inadvertently we had stumbled across it in full bloom and it became the photo she was imagining!

On Sunday afternoon we marched up there again armed with the big cameras and blessed with a clear blue sky.






Pure magic friends. It was worth waiting for.
