Leire church flower festival.

This is held every year, and this year the subject is "Remember Me".

My 'Sister',Lindsay did all the arrangements you see in dedication of my late Mother, who introduced Lindsay to flower arranging.

Enjoy the show!

For Mum

The festival runs until Monday. I hope you liked the arrangements, my Mum would have been proud of 'SIS'!

Me first!

I didn't realise that you were a church goer John.

The arrangements are very nice.

Wendy a, I'm not a church goer, I loathe religion, but Mum always did the church flowers, and she didn't go to church either!

Sandy: is 'chapeau' a way of saying 'hats off' - as in 'I salute you'?

So beautiful to look at. You've brought back memories of my Mum "doing the flowers" when it was her turn on the church roster.

Well done to your dear Mum,and to "Sis", these pixs are a joy.
Did your Mum used to raid your Dad's garden for blooms? His are more than beautiful enough.

Wow! Gorgeous flowers... how long did it take Lindsay to do all this? Was it a one-woman effort? Very impressive.
