43 comments


On a happy summer’s day, we travelled across Northamptonshire to Kislingbury village.

Before going on to the fête and dog show, we stopped to admire the Kislingbury villagers’ Flower Pot Display.

The flower pot theme was MUSIC

Wizard of Oz

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

The Wicked Witch is Dead with brilliant Tin Man

Fantastic Flower Pot Toto

Oooops …. avoid that car …!!!

I was risking life and limb to take these pics !

Orphanage …

… and orphans

Attractive brick containers …

I’d like some of those for my garden …

Bongo trio …

This was outside a pub called The Sun Inn

Solo guitarist …

… but will his arms reach the strings ? ;o)

Gaga …

Scary !

Nursery rhymes …

Tired Flower Pot musician ..

… with a pretty garden !

Grass hair day !

King of the Swingers …

Elton was wonderful but wind blown !

… and why was this theme one of my favourites ?

… Stairway to Heaven …


… because of the apt location … Lol

I hope you enjoyed these …

I have enough flower pot musician pics for another blog some time if you wish …

They are so good and a lot of thought and hard work as well as time went into making them, my favourites have to be the Tin Man and Toto...

What brilliant fun!
Such imaginations......I love the tin man and toto, it looks quite big, must have taken a while to create them
But each photo was more and more fun, in the end I couldn't decide on a favorite!
Look forward to the next instalment xxx

Brilliant TT! I love these village competitions - They bring out the community spirit in people... They take a lot of organising but can be such good conversation starters...! :o)))

21 Oct, 2013

 

Need a smile, and it brought it to my face. Some people are so clever, full of fun, and community spirit. Thanks TT for your cheerful presentation.

21 Oct, 2013

 

Brilliant blog TT. Thank you for showing it. Yes please to some more. You have cheered up a fairly chilly Monday morning. They must have been rocking in the aisles on Sunday. House prices are set to rocket in Kislingbury, you have really put it on the map. What a fun place to live.

21 Oct, 2013

 

Thank you everyone for your interesting comments ...

... fascinating to read which flower pot musicians are your favourites !

Some time soon, I'll look for more of my musical FPP pix and then I'll put them into a second blog ...

My thanks to the Kislingbury villagers for a wonderful display !

21 Oct, 2013

 

I love the flowerpot dog the best:)

21 Oct, 2013

 

This is just a great blog Terra, how talented the people are who thought this up! Thanks for sharing, it made me smile!

21 Oct, 2013

 

Thanks GM and Helenium ...
Yes... clever ideas from everyone !

There were too many photos for just one blog.
I have some good pics for using in a second blog some time in November :o)

21 Oct, 2013

 

Oh good - can't wait to see the photos!

21 Oct, 2013

 

Bongo Trio - Steals the show! Each one has a personality. Very clever and comical. I think I know the one on the left!

21 Oct, 2013

 

Wonderful blog, TT! :-)) Brought lots of smiles to my face as well! What a wonderful imagination these people have - they could come up here & use some of the 100s of flowerpots in our greenhouse on Gerry's allotment!

21 Oct, 2013

 

Hi Bathgate ... Bongo Trio seems very popular !

Hello Balcony ...
Maybe next year, you and Gerry and the other allotmenteers could devise your own Flower Pot People displays !

21 Oct, 2013

 

This is my third vist to your blog TT. I am enjoying it so much. Did your two not want to take Toto along to the show. That Grass Hair Day drummer is giving it laldy. I can hear him from here.

21 Oct, 2013

 

Wonderful pics Terratoonie.

I love the 'Bad hair day' ...
.... and the 'Orphans & orphanage'.
... puts me in mind of all the little flowerpots that get shoved in a corner of the garden & forgotten - they are orphans!!

What patience & imagination people have.

22 Oct, 2013

 

Hi Scotsgran ..
That's nice you've visited the blog lots of times :o)

Thanks Shirl ...
Some of the intricacies of the displays, I didn't notice myself until I saw my photos on the computer screen ..
great attention to detail by the flower pot artists !

22 Oct, 2013

 

Fantastic blog, it too such a lot of imagination...

22 Oct, 2013

 

Hi Terratoonie: Thank you. My mind is already buzzing with ideas. Unfortunately, I'm across the sea in New York. However, if you need a free hand, I'd love to come and help.

22 Oct, 2013

 

Hello Breda ... thank you ...

Hi again Bathgate ...
Maybe in New York you could make a little flower pot person and photograph it for us !

22 Oct, 2013

 

Humm, interesting idea. Something to do with all those extra pots I have. Thank You.

22 Oct, 2013

 

Love them all but my favourite is the Bongo Trio, just so clever people to think of these. Brilliant blog, loved it all.

23 Oct, 2013

 

Thanks Oliveoil ..
I'll sort out the rest of the photos and make another blog in a few weeks from now. There were too many pictures for one blog !

Yes .. very ingenious people with cleverly thought-out themes.

A brilliant Blog TT and so much fun , I liked the idea of a theme running through the village sometimes they are a bit disjointed with nothing to connect them ...

23 Oct, 2013

 

Hi Amy .. Thanks ..
Yes... a definite theme ..
I wasn't familiar with the village, and the displays were dotted around at various residential addresses !
... so I ran around with my camera, and then kept stopping to ask locals to direct me on to the next Flower Pot musicians !
Very much a keep-fit exercise ... Lol.

23 Oct, 2013

 

You can't beat a bit of eccentricity ....love them all, especially Stairway to Heaven. What a fantastic effort on the part of all the contributors .... looking forward to the next part, to put a smile on all our faces:-))

24 Oct, 2013

 

such a clever village...great pics.

27 Oct, 2013

 

Hi Ba .. glad you like the blog :o)

Hello Sandra .. Thanks ..
yes, very clever people in the village, and good that so many of them joined in with the fun. :o))

27 Oct, 2013

 

its so lovely when a community works together like this..

27 Oct, 2013

 

We've travelled to quite a number of Northamptonshire villages for fêtes and charity dog shows, and the community spirit seems very good in them all ...

27 Oct, 2013

 

Love that 'bongo trio', haven't people got great imaginations? Fantastic, thanks TT. Lol.

17 Nov, 2013

 

Thanks Grandmage ..
Very talented people ... so many different styles of Flower Pot Musicians ...
I have more FPP pics .. there were too many for one blog .. so I'll make another musical blog some time over the winter.

17 Nov, 2013

 

Look forward to it TT. It will brighten the dark days :)

17 Nov, 2013
