But today we visited my (retired) horse and both the Mums. On our journey home we detoured to buy some Kentish cherries. It has been a good year for cherries and David loves them .... this must be his fourth punnet in as many days I think!! A local lady had set up a covered stall in a field adjacent to the orchards and sold nothing but local cherries ... accompanied by her gorgeous 7 month old puppy ( a really cute Jack Russell cross) ... I took a few pictures of him to add to my 'to do' list :o)
Whilst driving through the village we followed directions to the local church which was hosting an 'art show' so stopped off to have a look. There was a good selection on display from artists of all levels and several pictures bore the desired 'red dots' denoting sales!
Tomorrow the village is hosting its annual 'scarecrow trail' and we saw several scarecrows on display. We've had extremely windy weather for the past few days in Kent so I think many scarecrows will have been kept safely indoors and won't make their appearance till tomorrow to avoid damage. I didn't have my 'proper' camera with me but we always keep a little one in the car - it takes reasonable pictures but the setting screen is hard to read so its usually 'point and hope for the best' .... good luck to all contestants tomorrow .. hope you find all the scarecrows, work out all the clues and have a brilliant day!
Here's a few of the scarecrows we met today:
These next ones were all in the church itself - the local vicar obviously has a great sense of humour and its wonderful that he allowed these 'characters' to be displayed in the pews/pulpit etc ..... all for the benefit of the village of course and what a great idea!
