Stumbled across this lovely post from Compton Verney visitors, hope you like it too!


Still with a bit of an art theme.

As we left Compton Verney we saw an irresistible sign.

For these


A pick-your-own sunflowers field.

How could we not?

Armed with secateurs the children lost themselves in a field of gold, sunflowers towering above them.



Bees buzzed.

But thankfully there were no wasps 🙂

And the kids picked flowers with blooms bigger then their heads!


I did have thoughts of getting them to paint the flowers a la Van Gogh.

But in the end we just enjoyed looking at them


In the immortal words of Coldplay

“And they were all yellow”

Indeed, Chris Martin, indeed.
