June Square | 21st June
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

Oast houses have such distinctive roofs. Good one, Jude.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I was surprised to see hops growing in Worcestershire / Herefordshire as I always believed they came from Kent.
Many do originate from Kent of course. The Hop Fields around Paddock Wood were where my family used to go ‘Hopping’, for their annual holiday, before I was born.
and there was me about to say, this must be in Kent! Forgot they do appear occasionally elsewhere.
Was one in Hampshire near where we lived too. I’ve always fancied living in one.
So have I!
Oh, I do love Oast Houses!
They are rather lovely.
I’m with Sue 🙂
Nice roofs. When I was a student I spent one hop picking season in Worcestershire, so that’s where I thought they grew, before I learned that they grew mainly in Kent!
Haha… so we were both confused!
was it fun? or was it exhausting?! I did apples one year as a student and that wasn’t fun and was exhausting!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed it, but that was because the people I was working with were fun, and we had a great time when the picking was done for the day. The farm fed us too, and paid us well, so it was all a plus really. I remember the smell of the hops -that was the least attractive part of the job. Apples were the next to be picked after the hops, but I had to go back home because I had a ‘proper’ job by then. I was sorry to miss them because that was a very well paid job it seemed.
oh that sounds fabulous . . . our farmer was new to the game and didn’t exactly look after us or his apples 😦
Perhaps we were just very lucky, but it was certainly a great time. I think this farmer had been doing it for years.
I like these, and even though I thought they were oast houses, I made sure to check the tags!
Yes, definitely an oast house – very distinctive roof 🙂
You’ve got a really good collection of roofs Jude, mine are all a bit samey.
I have a lot of roofs! And have been trying to find the more unusual ones for Becky.
Fabulous roofs Jude
Thank you Becky!
