April 21st – The evening exercise rides are getting a bit samey and I think I need to vary my palette a wee bit – but it’s quite hard with beauty like this not five minutes out of town.
I took a spin up to Ogley Junction from Brownhills: Just a short, lazy loop from Silver Street. The canal and fields near home farm looked spendid in the warm, softening evening sun.
Machinery is once more on the half-ploughed field, which is interesting, and the oilseed rape is now in full bloom, too.
I never, ever tire of this place. It’s so gorgeous.
