This is St. Peter's Church, Lilley last Saturday when I visited their glorious Flower Festival. You can read more about Lilley and its church here.

The graveyard is delightful, as is the church and I love to visit every year if I can. It is not my local church.

This year's Flower Festival theme was '  On the Air'   and the festival ran for three days over the recent Bank Holiday weekend.  For once the weather was kind, which made the whole thing more enjoyable and hopefully helped to raise the funds needed to keep this beautiful church in a healthy condition.

Here are some of the exhibits:

I'll show you some more of these wonderful flower arrangements next time,
and before I go - a Very Happy Birthday to my son David, who was 33 year's old yesterday and soon to be a dad for the first time!

  1. What a grand old church, and all those flower arrangements are just spectacular.
    I hope they raised lots of funds.

  2. What exquisite creations, and well snapped Stella.

    I too love wandering through some of our lovely old churches and churchyards. So peaceful and relaxing.

    Whilst working in London for HM Customs and Excise I frequently went to the quietude of St. Olave's church, near to my office. Lovely place, where a cheap lunch would be bought and usually free top notch entertainment too! I did a piece on this some time ago; it is here: http://bit.ly/YIkS16
