Wild Garlic flowers and a swan at Stratford Park, in Stroud. It rained all day but we went out with the waterproofs on and had a great time. The smell of garlic filled the air and it also made great soup that evening : )
We’ve just got back from a visit to Stratford Park, Stroud and we had a quick look around the gallery’s latest exhibition – Laura Fok’s jewellery – ‘Cloud Nylon’.
Incredible creations and I really want to go back and have a closer look. Her attention to detail is amazing and some very nice ideas in there, particularly the nylon/plastic materials and the suspended approach.
A day out in Stroud, first looking at someone’s insulated render system (part of the Stroud Open Homes weekend) and finally to Stratford Park.
Interesting to talk to a guy called Nick about their render. They now don’t need to use their central heating because it’s that good. They use a wood burner for the primary heat. I’m sure I know the guy from somewhere as well, just can’t place him!
Here’s the link to Nick’s project: http://www.stroudopenhomes.org.uk/?page_id=408
The first house we went to, the guy there had opted for internal insulation, which we’ve done upstairs, as the quotes he had back were too much.
Anyway, the park there is amazing, combining duck pond & fishing, museum, bandstand, playground, woodland walks and leisure centre complex.
Amazing cedar trees alert!
