Welcome back to the blog for Five on Friday, I hope you've had a great summer.
I've noticed a few things on the internet that you might find interesting.
One - 350th Anniversary of the Great Fire of London
This weekend there are a number of events taking place in London, marking the anniversary of the Great Fire of London that took place in 1666, culminating in the burning of a large wooden structure of the 1666 London skyline floating down the Thames. Have a look at the link for other things to see, including a long row of concrete dominoes being toppled over through the streets.
Two - Giant Knitting
This artwork was made by 10 and 11 year old pupils of the Yallinup Steiner School in South West Australia and won the Happs Winery Emerging Artist award at the Dunsborough Sculpture by the Bay Arts Festival. It was dyed and woven from 240m of muslin. If you are interested in reading about the education received at Steiner schools in the UK, here's a link.
Three - Heritage Open Days
Throughout England, all sorts of places will be open to the public to explore during 8th-11th September. Here's a link where you can put in your postcode to see what's open near you. There are 5,000 free events to choose from.
Four - Preemies UK - Charity Knitting/Crochet Patterns
If you have some time on your hands and you like making things out of wool, why not visit the Preemies UK Facebook page to find some patterns, create something and then post it off to them to be included in a box being sent to hospitals all over the country. You'll need to scroll down past the section on boxes and draws. All the details of where to send the items are given in their Facebook pages.
Five - Kew Gardens Great Broad Walk Borders
Only opened this summer, the new Broad Walk double herbaceous borders contain 30,000 plants which will be at their best between June and September. The borders stretch for 320 metres and were originally laid out in the 1840s but redesigned in 2015/16.
It looks rather spectacular. I must try and visit.
I hope you are all keeping well. Thanks to Amy at Love Made My Home for the link-up, so nice to be back to the Five on Fridays again.
