A record of wildlife in my garden and various trips to the Warwickshire countryside and occasionally further afield.
"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Victorian Christmas Fayre
We did consider returning to the Ludlow Medieval Fayre again this year as we enjoyed it so much but, in the end, as we had visited Ludlow a few months ago, we decided to try a different Christmas Fayre. We did consider Gloucester but in the end decided to go to Worcester's Victorian Fayre last weekend mainly because its closer to home!
Here's just a few of the 100's of stalls.
There was a very good Craft Fayre in the Guildhall although it was absolutely heaving with people. In fact, if I am honest the whole of Worcester was just teeming and it was a trifle too busy for me!
Some rather lovely glass in the Guild Hall loos!
The Morris Dancers again
I managed to lose B and D at one point and spent three quarters of an hour waiting by the Elgar Statue in the hope they would retrace their steps! I was very tempted to sneak off and have a look around the cathedral which was opposite. In the end I returned to the car sending out telephathic messages that I was doing this. Not sure if they did pick them up but within 5 minutes of my return they re-appeared. In the end they went back to the Victorian Fayre leaving me with an hour to look round the cathedral which I'll cover in another post.
Sorry for lack of comments on your posts this week - the cold which accompanied me as I traipsed round Worcester has developed into a chest infection and I've spent the entire week curled up surrounded by books. Have some antibiotics now so hopefully will be feeling better and back on the computer more soon. Trying very hard not to think of all the Christmas Shopping and Baking that remains to be done let alone a week's housework to catch up on!
Welcome to my blog. I have been interested in natural history from an early age and we have tried to create a garden attractive to wildlife.
