Five on Friday this week sees us back in Guildford. Having already done a few Guildford posts already, I didn't think there would be anything left to show you but, would you believe it, there is!
One - North Surrey Group of the Society of Designer Craftsmen
In Guildford House, we happened upon an exciting display of crafts. Mavis Walker's textile chess set stole the show. What a lot of time she must have spent creating the pieces which apparently look like members of the Group. It won the Quilt Creations category at the NEC Festival of Quilts.
Other work exhibited was by Sandra Hurll, Naomi Beevers, Fiona Bryer, Judy Dibiase, Alex Duncan, Silke Espinet, Joanna Lloyd, Yumiko Reynolds, Ande Treharne and Stephanie Wright.
Two - Wilderness
It's particularly wonderful on the towpath with all the wildflowers and insects. There's wild angelica and lots of black winged, shiny turquoise bodied dagonflies whizzing about - you'll have to zoom in on the second photo where I managed to capture one but only half a duck. It's not easy you know!
Three - Castle
There are cows in the Castle grounds, eek! Raising money for charity. The poor gardeners have prepared the flower beds for summer but have yet to plant all the pelargoniums and marigolds. Their tributes to The Queen looked magnificent.
Four - Cow and Gate
The Three Pigeons Pub had a sign outside. The well known Company Cow and Gate was started near the pub.
Five - Allen House Park
We found a new park - not only did it have a Jabberwocky maze but it also had the air vents from a maze of tunnels 50feet below which formed air raid shelters. How could I have missed this before?
Many thanks to Amy for the link-up and to you for visiting.
