As it has been dry and reasonably warm over the last few days, it seemed an appropriate time to finish off the fence-painting. Except, inevitably, I realised the new fence could do with a third coat, so the job isn’t finished after all!
I touched up the worst bits of the fence after giving the final part of the back fence a second coat. Then we went out to a village called Heath, near Wakefield, which one of my Knit and Natter group said was a favourite place of hers.
The village seems to consist of a very large common surrounded by grand houses. Quite different from what I’d expected but, as I enjoy discovering new places, I was pleased to have seen it.
We also did a walk which took us into the countryside round Wakefield. I’m not particularly familiar with this part of the world and am continually surprised by how pretty it can be. I didn’t take any photos on this occasion, though, as nothing stood out, apart from the horses on Heath Common. I have no idea who they belong to.
