wilts, rest, howard's house, beckford arms, phoenix, poppies

Taking a break in Wiltshire. Great to get away and do some walking -- as well as get some much needed rest!

Wet yesterday although sun shone today -- as pic of terrace at the excellent Howard's House Hotel shows (terrific range of unusual pudding wines at HHH btw -- www.howardshousehotel.co.uk).

Saw this field of agricultural poppies yesterday en route for lunch at the Beckford Arms -- now reopened after a fire and as good as ever (liked the locally-brewed Beckford Phoenix bitter -- www.beckfordarms.com). Wondered about these poppies -- maybe being grown for morphine (macsmith.com/index.php?page=uk-poppies)? Intriguing to see, anyway.
