There are fields in Pershore where a company grows flowers to make real confetti. Today we were delighted to have an opportunity to visit. Here we are with white deliphiniums behind us.
The deep pink deliphiniums were a sea of colour.
We stopped to take a closer look at the pale pink deliphiniums.
The flowers make a great background for photographs of small bears. Here we are with the blue delphiniums.
Nye spotted a rather splendid tractor so we went to try it out. The engine didn’t start which might be just as well.
Tractors have very big wheels.
We had a rest on some hay bales.
The wildflower field was also in full bloom. Bees were busy visiting many of the flowers collecting the nectar to make into honey. Bears like honey.
As you can see the flowers were quite a lot taller than us.
Little Nye nearly disappeared at one point.
Next we spotted the mini replica of an old bus. It was bear sized so I clambered into the drivers seat and tried to start the engine, but I think it didn’t have any fuel in.
We both went upstairs to see the view from the open top.
There were bear sized seats upstairs too.
It was time to go home so we had one last look at the flowers.
We bought a bag of confetti for the humans to throw at their niece when she gets married in August, and a pot of local honey. Yum yum yum.
The confetti field are only open for a couple of weeks each year, and lovely to visit if you are in the area.
