Chelsea Fringe

A rainy start to the week finished with glorious sunshine.  As many of my weekends do, it started with a walk into Faversham (where the sun always shines!)


Through the market, down Court Street and then up Church Street.  The graveyard path takes you  to the Masonic Lodge at the Old Grammar School.  The gate to the walled garden next door opens into a secret world of pond dipping, dead hedges, flowers, vegetable garden and a refreshment stop.



Always a fabulous haven in the centre of town.  We were invited to join in the Chelsea Fringe fun by making baubles for the felt tree sculpture in the garden.




Vibrant wool took its place next to a jug of scarlet poppies.  We were shown how to dip the wool in warm water, scrub it with soap, roll it into a ball and leave it to dry.  Threading the balls onto the tree was quite tricky, but worth the effort!


Until next time, happy flowers! Julie
