The Flame And A Bell
The Queen had a military parade today in the grounds of Windsor Castle.I watched the coverage on the BBC.I have all the red,white,and blue themed bunting,plates,cups,napkins,hats,and balloons for the Jubilee weekend BBQ.Im a lover of our monarchy,and of the olympics.
This is the artists impression of The Pop Up Oranges and Lemons garden in Shoreditch church.This Church is famous in the nursery rhyme "Oranges and Lemons;Say the Bells of Saint Clements"."When Will I be Rich,Say the bells of Shoreditch"
There will be Mediterranean plants,astro turf, and deckchairs.The pillars will be decorated with thousands of Oranges and Lemons.It is a communal space for people to relax,and was designed by Daniel Shea.He has worked with Homeless people and Children to plant up the church yard garden that will last a long time after the temporary garden has gone.
The good thing is that this is community inspired and not as exclusive as the RHS Chelsea flower show.As Bunny Mcguinness said they are like Gin and Tonic.Opposite in scope but complimenting each other.Some good organic goodness and community spirit will come from these events run by volunteers.
