Yesterday (Friday 31st July) I went to a Flower Festival at the church where my mum and dad were married in 1950. It's a beautiful old church with lovely stained glass windows. The best of which is the one at the back of the alter. Sadly my photo doesn't do it justice, as it is stunning.
First my friend and I walked round the stalls and tents where people were selling various things. No rain was forecast, but we thought it best to do the outside things first. We then stopped at the refreshment tent for coffees.
The flower arrangements this year were based on books that had been made into films. I couldn't take photos of all of the arrangements, as my camera batteries were running down. I had charged them up overnight, but think they have got to the point where they won't hold the charge for long now. I can't remember what all the arrangements were based on, but have included them as they are lovely arrangements.
As you went into the church they had this arrangement round the door. It is the Yellow Brick Road from The Wizard Of Oz.
Treasure Ireland (You can't see them in this photo, but there were gold coins and jewellery)
The Railways Children.
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.
Breakfast At Tiffanys.
Gone With The Wind.
My Fair Lady.
This one was in the entrance and was The Emerald City.
I think I only got photos of half the arrangements. When you first walked into the church the scent was lovely.
We headed back to the refreshment tent for coffee and a lovely fruit scone. It was so nice sitting out that we ended up having another drink, chatting and watching the world go by.
Hope you have a lovely day.
