Oilseed Rape FLowers Urschendorf and Gerasdorf 10.5.2021

Briht sunshine, up to 28 °C due to a foe weather situation, resulting in excellent visibility. The oilseed rape is in full flower now, so I take my mountain bike to have a look.

The first of the fields already shinng from afar ...

 ... so that I have to go close - walking through an adjacent field, carefully stepping between the rows of germinating sun flowers - a promise for beautiful views in July ...

The next field, a similar view.

Details from the oilseed rape flowers.

Bees enjoy - and the beekeepers together with them.

I have venturede further, along the outskirts of Urschendorf and along the trail of the long ago disused local railway between Willendorf and Neunkirchen. Behind Gerasdorf, I go further a bit heading for Mollram, but nistead entering the forest, I branch to the left on a narrow gravel road, to enjoy the view to these oilseed rape fields from above.

The hilly landscape between St. Egyden/Urschendorf/Gerasdorf and Mollram/Raglitz also is built from Rohrbach conglomerate - like the Gesanger Bühel and the hills between Saubersdorf and St. Egyden.

Hohe Wand behind the huge oilseed rape fields.

View in the direction of St. Egyden, lying hidden behind the hills to the left.

Coloured stripes in the land ...

Hohe Wand

Only a small bit of Schneeberg visible from here, behind the mountains of Würflach (Eichberg and Mittereck).

I rode back to near Gerasdorf and branched off to the right to the narrow tarmac road heading for St. Egyden/Neusiedl. This is the panoramic view of the fields from the opposite side, no less impressive. Click here or into the picture for a larger display.

From a bit more afar, Schneberg is slightly better visible...

 ... and the village of Würflachin this picture. 

I proceed to Neusiedl and a bit of the Blätterstraße heading for Weikersdorf, before I branch off to the left to Sauberdorf and Winzendorf. Opposite to the gravel pit near Neusiedl, I find another flowrishing oilseed rape field ...

 ... with Schneeberg in behind, and houses of Neusiedl.
