From a great distance, I could see this yellow carpet at the horizon and I knew , there is something to photograph.
It is a delightful Hypericum Hidcote (St. John's Wort) plantation, attracting the eye (and the bees) with it's bright yellow blossoms.
There are many different species of Hidcote.
This one is the Hypericum 'Hidcote'- St. John's Wort.
And bellow is the Hypericum calycinum also called Creeping St.John’s Wort.
These stamens are like a firework in the middle of the flower.
Bees love these flowers too, as the tips of the stamens are packed with pollen.
The bright-red fruits are the exact color I missed from the photo above.
