Deerhurst Flower Festival

Every other year the village of Deerhurst, on the outskirts of Tewkesbury, holds a flower festival over the summer bank holiday weekend in their church. This time the theme was Sounds Of Songs And Praise and there were 28 different arrangements, some small and some very grand. This one was in the entrance to the churchyard and was entitled Dancing Around The Maypole. It was one of the more imaginative creations, with sunflowers representing children, and was a lovely arrangement to welcome visitors to the festival.

I took loads of photos, so over the next few days I'll show you some of the other floral masterpieces. To see the flowers of 2006, and to read about the festivals history, go to Deerhurst Flower Festival.

Whee! That's a fun creation! Looking forward to the rest of your photos! I love flowers but can't stand gardening because of the bugs.

This is a wonderful May Pole interpretation!! And the comments are quite entertaining, too. Kudos to you, Marley, for photographing this, and also to the creator of this unique offering! I like it a lot.
