And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

1940's Event at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens



D and I popped along to the annual 1940's event at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens yesterday afternoon. A fun afternoon filled with nostalgia, music, vintage stalls, cars and bikes.

Lady Bridgman's Garden












D and I had a walk in the sunshine this afternoon along the banks of the River Blythe in Solihull. Masses of Wild Garlic everywhere along with Bluebells, Cow Parsley, Yellow Archangel and Spring flowers galore - will do a post on this later in the week.

I think I still have a ration book kicking around somewhere along with my identity card.

Midmarsh John - Thanks so much for the comment. I have to start clearing my mother's house soon so it will be interesting to see what I find round there!
