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.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    There is so much to discover without going very far afield. One coat over the whole fence will bring it all together.

    Yes, there is a lot to discover without going very far. I sometimes wonder why the allure of far away has a stronger pull… the tree conference might have been interesting but I probably had a more meaningful afternoon with my daughter by walking along a local river!
