In the Spirit of all things romance and weddings, I visited the confetti fields in Worcester this weekend. Unfortunately the unpredictable british weather hadn't been too kind on this years crops. With lots more rainfall than expected, the tall flowers had risen well, however with a lack of sunshine there was a delay in them flowering. These fields are open for only two weeks in the year before being harvested by hand and the fields reverted back for use of regular crops, this was the opening weekend so maybe a with a fortnight more sunshine may allow for more blooming towards the end of the open days, before they are harvested for confetti.
The purple flowers seem to have fared the best from this years typically British weather, with the pink appearing to be on the verge of bursting into colour too. You can just imagine how these fields would look when in full bloom as I'm sure they aren't far from being.

Photo 2 The Purple faring slightly better as they were the most developed in the fields.
Photo 3 You can imagine how these colourful fields would look at the height of bloom possibly a further couple of weeks and they will indeed be just that.
Photos 4 & 5 a solid number of bees were making the most of a rare sunny day doing their bit pollenating gracefully flying from flower to flower.
I do hope I get to return this year and see them in full bloom though with the fields being open only two weeks a year I fear we may have to wait until next year. A lovely trip to see how these confetti petals look before being hand picked and dried naturally for marrying couples enjoyment through the year.
