Morning Flowers, DIY Rainbow and Larkhall Festival

Out with Bella this morning, I again admired my neighbour's irises.
Cow parsley lining the path down to Fairfield Park Road
Dandelion seeds ready to spread. 
 Another tulip spotted!
Comfrey shining out in the morning light. 
The sun also illuminated these red leaves. 
Another tulip - frilly edged and dark. 
Back home in the back garden, it was time to make my own rainbow with the garden hose on spray setting.
Dropped down into town with Su to get a new case for her travels later in the week, and parked up by the Royal Mail sorting office with a view of the church behind.
After that we went to Larkhall to sample some of their festival - we've missed it for the last few years because we've been in Greece.
Lots of shop windows had Alice in Wonderland-themed window displays - this was the pet shop.
The French cafe opposite (I particularly liked the dormouse).
In the hairdresser. 
In the window of the Titfield Thunderbolt
Another cafe display.
Charity shop display. 
We went up to the New Oriel Hall, where the car park had been cleared for festival events of all but this one car - so it served to anchor some bunting. 
The stirring sounds of the Red Boot Band drew us along. 
"Stop Moo and Buy One -" Great slogan and URL! 
Inside, we enjoyed the art exhibition - I was really taken with these pots. 
I was also taken by Jez Broun's self-adapted guitar. 
 This weekend celebrates ten years of the New Oriel Hall.
This day a year ago, we were enjoying time down at Pedi…
