#Words and #PictureOfTheDay: 20/Apr/22

A different view today. I used to live in East Yorkshire, a county that’s mostly fairly flat and very arable. Wide skies and fertile fields are the most common features here. This was taken on one our favourite walks from our previous home, in early April. To me it’s an essentially English landscape. What do you think?


Much of humanity lives among natural wonders. Some people ignore and others actively dislike such beauty, even working to destroy the only world we can inhabit.
These daily posts are to encourage joy in nature, respect for the natural world, in hope of inspiring love of a planet that’s a marvel of unlikely coincidences.
We may be alone in the universe as a living species with sentience. But we may never know. Vast distances in time and space mean we’re unlikely to meet, or even effectively connect with, other sentient lifeforms.
So, we must live as if we’re the only life form conscious of existence and able to modify our environment. We can benefit all life forms, or act entirely selfishly in the mistaken and self-destructive belief we’re apart from nature. History, science, and common sense show us daily how intricately we’re part of nature. Is it wise to ignore this simple fact?
If you’d like to spread joy in our wonderful planet and encourage respect and responsibility for it, will you share these posts on social media (‘share’ buttons below make it easy), comment with your thoughts, and help sustain our environment for the future? After all, Earth is our only home. Thank you.

    1. The Wolds are on the northeastern coast of England, so not as wet as our west, but enough rain to keep the landscape a fresh green. Are the prairies mostly used for cereal crops, Lynette? Here in East Yorkshire they grow lots of different crops and also graze cattle and sheep.

      1. Lots of cereal grains and cattle. There are some sheep, depending on location. Some parts of the original prairie have been preserved and only bison are allowed to graze there. Lots of solar farms are sprouting, though; thousands of kilometres of them. The Canadian prairies are about 1.8 million km2, so there’s a lot of variation with some parts more arable than others.

    1. The area is mostly flat, Noelle, and the sea lies about 8 miles due east of this spot. The whole area is mostly made up of clay left behind after the Ice Age, and is used for some very productive arable farming. A short distance to the west, and to the north, there are the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds, a beauty spot most people never know of, let alone visit!

        1. Ah, the Yorkshire Dales, Noelle, where I’ve also lived, is a much more rugged landscape than the Wolds. Many people consider the Dales the best walking country in Europe in fact. But the Wolds bring a much gentler, more tamed landscape with only a few relatively small rounded hills and valleys.
