Port Sunlight and Edward Burne-Jones.....

The Lady Lever Art Gallery

Sponsa de Libano Water colour by Edward Burne-Jones. This painting is over three meters tall and is based on the song of Solomn in the bible.

Veiw though the arch at the end of Queens mile.

How posh is this sign for neighbourhood watch.

Port Sunlight Museum
Tiny tea cup ans saucer a little treat from DH.
Yesterday was another gloriously sunny day.  Colin and I decided to make the most of it and visit the beautiful Village of Port Sunlight to see the Edward Burne-Jones exhibition. Such a treat he is one of my favourite painters. I have to say it was breath taking, 30 delicate drawings and water colour paintings that are to fragile to be on permanent display.  These drawings and paintings have not been on public display for more than two decades.  Just as we entered the Lady Lever the heavens opened but by the time we emerged the sun was once again cracking the flags and we enjoyed the remainder of the afternoon exploring the village. Colin bought me this tiny tea cup as a little surprise because I had been drawling over all the tea cups in the museum. Another trinket for my sewing room that holds a lovely memory of a fab day out.
