Poppies

Choosing the right blip is always difficult and I often think I have made the wrong choice, even when I have only taken a few in one place. When I have three sets of pictures, taken in three different types of location in the same day the task becomes impossibly hard.

Last Wednesday marked another return to Sutton Coldfield in the Midlands on family business, this time to see the solicitors about my late father's estate and to make funeral arrangements for next month.

On the way up we drove through the Cotswolds and visited Snowshill Manor, stuffed to the gills with collectables, including penny farthing bikes, spinning Jennies, model villages and all kinds including this charming device designed to clamp around a slave's neck during transportation.

Before we arrived there we had stopped near Snowshill village (used in the filming of Bridget Jones's Diary, apparently) to admire this field of poppies.

The solicitors' was in Knowle, a Warwickshire village in south Birmingham that happens to be close to the Grand Union Canal and after the meeting we detoured to Knowle Locks on the Kenilworth Road before continuing to Sutton.
