The picture above shows the view from where we sat to eat our scrummy homemade cake - as you can see there are lots of oldy worldy buildings. The church is lovely and the current building was built in 1190 - that's a very, very, very long time ago!
The theme of the flower festival was it's a wonderful world - here's piccies of some of the displays.
|Flowers in lots of different shoes|
|The front porch of the church decorated beautifully|
|These flowers represented the Araura Borealis|
I loved the above display themed around books and reading - they even included a kindle. My favourite quote in the display was the one below - oh so true.
|Flower puppy dog - slightly dodgy looking teeth|
|Beautiful display incorporating the pulpit|
|A trumpet made out of flowers completes the wonderful world theme|
|Flowers in the font|
|Recreation in flowers of the famous wartime kissing picture|
|I really liked this display using breakfast crockery and an eggshell - so pretty|
Now I couldn't do this post without a few shots of the lovely old headstones - it's very much a graveyard that is still in use interspersed with the old.
Sarratt is a lovely little village with lots of pretty houses - the one below had a cute little Dragon on the end of the roof and the next two are a bit like a tub of Neapolitan ice cream.
On our way home we called into Rickmansworth Aquadrome for lunch at the Cafe in the Park - it was packed with families but as usual the quiet room had lots of space. In the quiet room there was a box of knitted squares and others in progress with a note asking if patrons would help by doing a few rows - the squares are going to be put together into a rug and then raffled to raise funds for Mencap. I was very pleased to see a purple square needing rows so happily added a few - it seemed quite fitting as just that morning I had been talking to my gorgeous niece Emily about knitting.
This is the 100th blog post I've written - how perfect that there were headstones in it and it featured a day out that didn't cost very much. Remember it's the little things that really count in life.
Until next time, stay safe, be good, and keep smiling.
