May Tree Fair and other Summer Fun!

The little village of St Germans, where I used to live, have revived an old and most lovely festival. I'm still trying to find out what it was actually all about, but it was pretty pagan and lots of fun! There was lots of greenery worn by all and music, dancing, and a goddess looking lass riding a beautiful horse!

 The procession went through the village from the primary school to the pub via the stunning norman church.

 Also, on a most random note (excuse the pun!)...
 this is what happens when your 5 year old is very quiet for a good 5minutes...why she felt the need the write her name on all my post it notes and stick them to the window...why..? I do not know, but I did find it quite funny!
and this amazing portrait of the Queen! I thought it was crazy Simpsons hair but it was intended as the crown! The Queen also seems to be sporting a pair of fabulous green running shoes! Well she looks pretty happy and she certainly cheered me up! Loving the massive blue eyes too.

xxx  Anyways folks, hope you are all well and happy xxx

Do you have any random interesting festivities in your homelands?? Or do you know anything about the May Tree thing??

Love from the Dotty Bird x

    your daughter has captured the Queen in one of her happiest moments of her life I gather.
    Is a bautiful drawing and you should sent it to her ( or rather a copy!)


    1. I love community get togethers! I really should send her a copy, its the most vibrant and happy picture she has ever drawn! and it really made me laugh!

  4. Its such a small world. We were at dinner with the two lovely folks in your picture only a couple of months ago. The festival looks beautiful, such great traditions, its good that they are being kept alive x

    1. Our little worlds are definately most interconnected! It was a brilliant little gathering and had alot of spirit, you'll have to come along next year! x
