I love instagram for giving me ideas for days out with the kids and something I have been wanting to do for a while is to take the kids to see a field filled with flowers.
Eliza is my little flower girl and during our country walks, can often be found sat next to a batch of wildflowers with her book, trying to identify them.
A couple of weeks ago my husband told me he spotted a poppy field on the way to work, just past the popular National Trust location, Badbury Rings, near Wimborne.
The field is accessible from Badbury rings, however, we found a small carpark and pathway that allowed access to the field a little further along the Blandford Road.
There are several pathways through the poppies to choose from, meaning that you don’t disturb the flowers themselves.
If you do go exploring, I recommend you wear sturdy shoes as the ground is quite uneven underfoot.
We spent about an hour exploring the field, before heading to Barford Farm for a much needed ice cream treat.
Have you found any poppy fields near you?
