It is still possible to have milk delivered to the door - usually on three days a week - but most people buy their milk at the supermarket. Even my cousin does that now. When they first took over the farm 25+ years ago they bought two Jersey cows for their milk. The cows were milked twice a day by hand and the milk was placed in the farm dairy to settle. After a while the cream could be skimmed off the top. This was churned into butter: I spent what seemed like many hours turning the handle on that churn! The remaining milk was thick and rich and our "silver top" always seemed thin and watery after a stay on the farm.
So nowadays we have whole milk with blue bottle tops, semi-skimmed with green and skimmed with (I think) red tops. There are a few other options like organic. But in France it is all different. Most French people buy UHT milk. In their supermarkets there is very little shelf space in the chiller cabinet given over to fresh milk but there will be a complete aisle of the UHT. And just to add to the confusion, whole fresh milk has red bottle tops.
The view from the bedroom was good again this morning when I woke, though the sky was a paler, more English blue. This time I did have the camera.
