German Rapsoel

There's not much better in Germany than making it through the winter and being rewarded with the stunning views of the fields of "Raps" or "rapeseed" in English, I believe.  They're bright yellow flowers that cover the countryside and are harvested to make "Rapsoel" or "rapeseed oil" for cooking.  I guess it's an alternative to normal vegetable oil (Pflanzenoel) or sunflower oil (Sonnenblumenoel).  Either way, it really upgrades the landscapes here.  We are also lucky that our school sits next to some farmland that grows this stuff every other year or so.

This guy's also growing some kind of wheat next to it.
