To be in England, in the summertime

Another day, another great ride. Today I headed out early afternoon, firstly to Chasewater then on to Lichfield and the festival market. From the busy city, I headed to the quiet of the east Staffordshire countryside – Whittington, Croxall, Walton, Rosliston, Lullington, Harlaston and back via Wall.

A fine ride in very hot weather, about 45 miles. It was still, and the air hazy. I make no apologies for sharing a second set of ride images this weekend – it’s glorious out there, and I know many of the readers love these.

The poppies at Pipe Hill are joyous. Do go check them out if you can.

    I hope anyone catching the joyous poppies at Pipe Hill manage to park their vehicles more sensibly than some of the idiots who were there last week.

    Hi Bob
    I enjoyed the glorious sight of these poppies this morning as I drove past. Are they grown to manure the field or as a crop, or as setaside? However, they did bring memories of my visits to Flanders and the silent battlefields, but I was still able to keep my mind on my driving around this fast new traffic island. Thanks for the article and for taking time to take these photos for us all to appreciate and enjoy.
    regards
    David
