We have often been amazed at how beautiful the Czech Republic is. One of the most beautiful sights here is a rapeseed field in full bloom. Every spring the flowers begin to show up in April and the farmers start plowing and planting. In early May the rapeseed fields begin to bloom with a yellow flower so vivid it seems phosphorescent. The color is so brilliant that it’s almost blinding to look at these fields in full sunlight. It’s one of our little delights each year to see the return of this crop.
