A Trip to Ledbury

A few weeks ago we had a trip to the lovely old market town of Ledbury. Full of lovley old buildings (and lovely old shops) it's right up my street as far as a day out is concerned.

Firstly, a walk up this famous cobbbled lane to the town's church.On the way resisting locally made delicacies


and dragging Mr. F. past this very traditional old English pub.

Into the church

where I notice this set of rules for bell ringers in the tower.

 Then it's off to do serious shopping and am delighted at how the old


 sits in with the new


 Ledbury also has a very good independent bookshop.Amazon is great, but there's nothing like holding and browsing a book before you buy it.

 I couldn't resist taking a photo of these dear little tins sat in the window of the delicatessesn. It's not the best picture in the world, but I'm sure you'll let me off. I'm sure they would look wonderful in my kitchen. Tins - they are my one weakness you know.


 All being well we will venture out somewhere this weekend. What will you be doing? Will you be locking all the doors to keep out the rain and wind that has been rattling my sash windows? Or will you be venturing out and braving the weather, come what may? I'd love to  know.

By the way, can I say a big thank you to everyone who took time to send their best wishes on our recent wedding anniversary. I had a lovely morning out at some wonderful gardens. Sadly, the batteries in my camera only lasted the first five minutes of my visit. I shall just have to re-visit in the near future, so that I can share them with you.

2nd May 1987

Today is our silver wedding anniversary. The local florist has just delivered this bouquet from Mr. F.. Mr F. is at work today, so I'm off to visit Whitlenge Gardens with the in-laws - and no it isn't raining (yet). There's a luxury weekend away planned, but not until September, when hopefully, the sun might be shining.

Now, excuse me whilst I nip off to arrange my flowers in an artistic fashion.
