On Tuesday afternoon, I took advantage of the lovely sunny weather, and managed to get a flight from Compton Abbas to fly around the farm taking lots of pictures.  I have been trying to do this for several weeks, while the rape is in flower, but there have been very few fine days, or days when the airfield could fit me in.  The countryside looked utterly beautiful, and the bright yellow fields of rape make it look the most amazing patchwork, the rape stretches as far as you can see to the north, south and east, but there is very little to be seen down in the Vale, not surprisingly, still mostly grass country, as it should be!

Anyway, here is a small selection around Durweston.

  1. First a thumbs-up for the hard work you are doing in keeping your WordPress site so interesting.

    I found this picture (http://viewfromthehill.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/IMG_1169s.jpg) that has a view of both Durweston and Stourpaine.

    Would have have a higher resolution version and would you allow me to put it directly into our Stourpaine community website, stourpaine.info?
    It would have a direct mention back to your blog and whatever copyright you wish to advise.

    Regards,
    George
