Mustard by the sea

DAY 153 (5 SEPTEMBER) – Field mustard (Sinapis arvensis) (Zahora, Spain)

Leaving the beach on a very hot afternoon, I saw these tiny yellow field mustard flowers lining the dusty path on the dunes. They’re also known as charlock and California rape.

They are typically found in the fields of North Africa (almost visible today if it weren’t for the heat haze), Asia and Europe. They prefer sunny places at an altitude of 0-1,400 metres above sea level. These were probably one metre above, so they just qualified.
