Fields of wheat and barley stretch endlessly beneath the bluest of skies.
And in late summer, harvest.
It’s the season for seascapes.
For exploring the beach.
And for wonder, as one small person changes her ideas, moment by moment, about a day on the sands.
It’s the season for outdoor theatre. Here’s the end of an evening in the Dales. The unmissable Handlebards – all four of them – have just finished performing Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with Wensleydale as their backdrop. This summer – no show.
There’s entertainment in town too. Impromptu sessions on the Regent’s Canal in London.
Followed by a walk through an urban garden at Coal Drops Yard…
…and, back at home, fields of poppies.
Summer, in its simplicity.
