Rain, rain, go away!

As I write this post it is 9.30 pm and the rain is coming down steadily. My title might suggest that I don't appreciate a drop of the wet stuff, but in actual fact I love listening to the raindrops on the foliage outside the window and because it is very mild despite the rain, the fragrance from the Rosa Mundi rose is intoxicating.



I mentioned previously that our village open garden even last weekend was a two part event. As well as the beautiful gardens there was also an exhibition in the church of St Anthony's. There were examples of quilts..




and quilting...


Then there was stunning tapestry work...




My favourite theme for embroidery, being crinoline ladies and samplers..







And finally, the flowers, which was what the whole day was about really!

Good night and sleep tight.
