The millennium spawned all sorts of arts projects, many of them grandiose, but these ceramics entitled Field of Flower are amongst my favourites. They are displayed on a wall just off of the marketplace in Alston in Cumbria and are the results of a community tile workshop run by Alston potters Syl Macro and Sue Sharp.
These delightful interpretations of North Pennine meadows are well worth looking out for if you are passing through Alston.
Incidentally, if you are in the town stop by The Moody Baker and try one of their wolf pies - perfect picnic food. I had one for my lunch today.
