The weekend has mainly been the usual cooking, tidying, gardening and walking the dog. I have therefore chosen to step backwards to last Wednesday to find something new to show you. Some of you may have seen the suspended umbrellas that I blogged last Thursday. Well this was just part of a series of novel installations around the shopping centre in Bath. Outside the station in Brunel Square there is what they refer to as garden. Basically some artificial grass, some telephone boxes and a Union Jack tepee. I gathered from the local paper that I was the wrong day for a free hand out of Pimms or strawberries.
Have you ever seen a phone box stuffed with flowers?
Or a box decorated with Union Jack maps?
The third one is an idea I have seen before. A phone box library/ bookshelf.
It does look a little untidy though. Perhaps a little job for you Sian?
While I was waiting by these boxes for my sister's train to arrive something else occurred that I have never seen before. Three ladies appeared with three trainee guide dogs and they started to do a bit of training.
This little chap started well.
But oh dear! The excitement was just too much!
A little bit more training to go and a lot of time and patience needed.
