On Sunday, we drove out to a place called Altofts to collect some books that a kind gentleman had offered me on Nextdoor, an app which connects neighbours (who sign up). Altofts isn’t actually next door, however, so in order to feel that there had been some greater justification for driving my car to collect some reading material, I looked up what might be of interest in the area.
As it happens, we’d already seen much roundabout but there appeared to be a wood which was new to us on the road to Wakefield. So, we set off and found some beautiful fields full of poppies, though sadly nowhere to stop off to take a photo. By the time we found a spot by the side of the road, we were too far passed the fields but at least we were by some woodland.
Field and Flower also featured again on Monday, as a much anticipated delivery of British fish arrived from a company of that name. My daughter loves fish but we rarely eat it, not least because I am concerned about the effects of over-fishing. However, this company supports a different model and, whilst I could probably find more local fish, I have no idea how it will have been caught.
