Looking Across The Malverns to the Cotswold Escarpment
MERY enjoying herself
What sort of story could this Conestoga Wagon tell
Glorious Autumn Colour
Autumn has been wonderful this week and on Tuesday I meet a friend at the Malvern Hills for a lovely walk. It is a steep climb but once you get to the top their are marvelous views looking across Worcestershire to the Cotswold hills in the distance.
As usual Mery enjoyed every minute of it and spent a good deal of her time rubbing her face along the grass and just generally being a delinquent teenager.
So today we set off for Bath to visit the special quilt exhibition at the American Museum that has been on since May. I thought it was about time I got my skates on and visited before it closes next week.
As usual no photography allowed but all the quilts are in the book. CLASSIC QUILTS from The American Museum.
Their were several I could have bought home with me but my favourite was a Whigs Defeat with a white background and the Whigs Defeat block in red, yellow and green.It also has a applique flower border round the edge.
The museum is set within the most beautiful grounds looking over a valley and I wondered what story the Conestoga wagon could tell. Had it been used to go west, their begs a question.
On driving back I decided to stop off at WESTONBIRT ARBORETUM to see the autumn trees in all their glory and what a site it was . Absolutely breathtaking.
