FLOWER POT PEOPLE ... the MUSICAL GROUPS

This follows on from my 20th October blog …
♫♫ FLOWER POT MUSICIANS ♫♫

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

It was wonderful to see families and children all joining in, having fun.

The weather was very windy, but most of the displays stayed intact !!!

♫♫ MADNESS ♫♫ …

♫♫ QUEEN ♫♫ …

This display worked well with the Freddie Mercury music coming from the loudspeakers …

♫♫ BEATLES SONGS ♫♫ …

She’s Leaving Home …


……………………………………………………………………..

Fixing a Hole …

……………………………………………………………………..

When I’m Sixty Four…

……………………………………………………………………..

Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite …

……………………………………………………………………..

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds …

……………………………………………………………………..

Paperback Writer …

……………………………………………………………………..

Maxwell’s Silver Hammer …

……………………………………………………………………..

Penny Lane …

……………………………………………………………………..

Octopus’s Garden …

……………………………………………………………………..

… and … the final pic in this set …

… I love this one …

♫♫ More BEATLES .. ♫♫ …

interactive themes … clever ideas !

Two spare flower pot heads were available for
those who wanted to be photographed as Paul and Ringo … with George and John on the crossing !

George …

John …

Near the Yellow Submarine, you could pose for pics, fitting your faces above the flower pot bodies …

♫♫ … Sky of blue and sea of green …

… in our yellow submarine … ♫♫

FAB – U – LOUS ! .. Well done Kislingbury village.

Thank you Tt. I'm off to bed chuckling. I could not decide on a favourite because they are so inventive and fun. I wish the good folks of Kislingbury a very happy Christmas and many more years of sharing and caring in their community.

Thanks for sharing TT. Not much going on in our gdns at present so lovely to see your blog of happy summer events. Hats off for Kislingbury, so creative.

11 Dec, 2013

 

Thanks for your comments and 'likes' ...

I wonder which theme Kislingbury will choose for next year's flowerpot displays ?

11 Dec, 2013

 

You were able to 'Please please me' with this delightful blog as if it was only 'Yesterday' when it all happened. The people must have had a 'Hard days night' getting it all ready and I cannot begin to 'Imagine' the hard work that went into it all! I would like to 'Follow the sun' and see it for myself if they ever do it again!

Thanks Terra.

This was great, Terra. I can't understand at the moment why I'm not being notified about everyones blogs. I'm only getting a few and missing others !

13 Dec, 2013

 

Had a chuckle at all the new titles being added, glad I decided to have another read..
Rose my news page often gets stuck for some reason, think it gets tired....

13 Dec, 2013

 

Do you just look at your favourites Rose? I'm afraid i haven't got any - I look at all of them!

13 Dec, 2013

 

Thanks for that Sue ! Yes I'm afraid I do, Steragram as I'm not online for long and not always every day !

14 Dec, 2013

 

What a fantastic blog, TT!!! You were really inspired to do that! The people of that village did a magnificent work in getting all those wonderful displays made up!

If we had a competition to choose the "Best Blog of the Year" then this one would come out on top - a long way ahead of any competition! :-))

You must have put a lot of time & thought into making it up & it's turned out brilliantly!

16 Dec, 2013

 

Wow Balcony... your kind words have really cheered me up ... thank you! This is my second of two blogs about the brilliant Flowerpot musicians in Kislingbury ... the villagers put so much work and inventiveness into their displays !

16 Dec, 2013

 

Oh Terra, you have stirred some musical memories with all those Beatles songs ... many I had forgotten about ... brilliant blog and some great comments along the way too! ... :o)

17 Dec, 2013

 

So Rose, if you only look at your favourites how do you ever add anybody to them?

17 Dec, 2013

 

Thanks Shirley...
Glad this brought back happy memories for you :o) x

18 Dec, 2013

 

Indeed it did ... and I surprised myself at how many songs I still know the words to ... lol!
