Day 002…

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 : )

Stratford Park abstracts…

A great day out at Stratford Park with the boys. Clear and bright with an autumn nip in the air – lots of good direct sunshine with shadows everywhere! The leaves are starting to turn and fall from the trees and my favourite time of the year : )

Laura Fok jewellery…

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’.

Her website is here

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.

Stratford Park…

We drove over to Stroud the other day for a cold, but nice couple of hours.

Stroud have got a great park, with lots of different areas, including some mature landscaped grounds, playground, museum and woodland!

Stratford Park, Stroud…

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!
