Forget me nots


Over the weekend on a visit into our local town Shrewsbury,we walked down to the castle to look at this sea of metal forget me nots

they are so lovely

The flowers have been individually handcrafted locally at the British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry

The centre is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

The flowers will be on disply for a while and then will be sold off for £25 – all proceeds to the local hospice

What a wonderful idea – similar to the Tower of London poppies – we bought one of those – it is standing proud in our summer house – and hopefully soon with a forget me not for company – enjoy your week Jane

What a lovely sight for a very good cause. I hope they raise lots of money.
