After a visit to the"Big Guy" on Sunday, we headed over to Chelveston to view the carpet of Snowdrops and Aconites
Its a tiny village, but a well supported church.
|yellow aconites along the footpath approach|
Where we bumped into several people to chat too....
And as you approach the building there is a hint of what's to come
It was quite cold and misty
But so peaceful (even though there were hoards of visitors!)
With thousands of these little darlings bobbing their heads in the breeze
The volunteers serve hundreds of cups of tea and plates of cake, but we went for a home-made soup and roll for £1.50!! (Delicious!)
And we met up with so many people that we haven't seen for ages.
Then back out to take more pics.
I think that one more week would have seen more flowers in bloom and less buds. This will look like a carpet of snow shortly.
And a pause for thought at the loss of so many young men
My Mum remembered the USAF base here during WW2 and how all the young girls visited the dances that they held, and accepted stockings and make up and things that had not been seen since war broke out
Each year many ex servicemen re-visit the local area and have supported the church keenly.
|A double variety|
I shall head over there again later in the week to see the change. I will take more pics and hopefully let you know how much money they raised.
And when we got home, I just needed to add the binding to my "Plus" Quilt.
The machine kept skipping stitches, so I gave it a bit of a sort out and I don't know whether to be proud or ashamed of this little lot!
