Do - On The Scarecrow Trail...

Whilst today is a pressing mass of grey cloud and rain, yesterday was really rather lovely and so we sallied forth under blue skies to the Sonning Scarecrow Trail. Sonning, for those of you that don't know it, is a picture postcard village on the banks of the Thames near Reading. It's just down the road from us and happily, every other year they hold a Scarecrow Trail where the whole village get a little bit silly and a little bit creative and gardens become full of papier mache figures while the roads fill with happy people wandering around, asking strangers if they've found scarecrow number twenty-seven or where the nearest tea stall is. It's all a bit lovely and a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon while the white clouds race overhead and the sun shines on...
