The Confetti Fields in Wick near Pershore are open but this year you have to prebook because of restrictions caused by the virus. It was a year the Real Flower Petal Confetti Co were beset with problems not only flooding and the Coronavirus but also the first planting was not successful. However they were able to replant the flower field to bloom later in the year. The delphiniums are much shorter and not as imposing as they are generally. To help out this year they had Sunflowers and wild flower fields which were impressive in their own way. Natasha Walmsley, my daughter, kept tabs on when they tickets were being released. We headed down to the fields and were not disappointed. The colours were there and there were many opportunities for photographs.
The sunflowers were tall and high with many insects including bees alighting on them. The wild flowers were pretty and delicate. Finally the delphiniums were colourful and whilst not as tall they still put on a show. The sun was up and it was very bright. I used my circular polariser to reduce the glare. I also got low and went high with several pictures just to get a different effect. Going high I just had to hope that I had everyone in the picture.
As is tradition after the visit to the fields, we head over to the public park in Pershore and have a picnic in the delightful surroundings of Pershore Abbey. It is an idyllic spot and another great venue for photographs.
