Today was our day for foraging in the charity shops and one of our favourite shops is one called 'Emmaus'.
This is more than a charity shop as it is a large lot of buildings and gardens run mostly by homeless people looking for a fresh start, you can read about it here http://www.emmaus.org.uk/brighton_hove
As I was leaving I spotted a really novel idea for a wood pallet.
How lovely this looks, stood on its side, filled with soil and planted with alpines.
I love it.
Someone had the idea and it is ingenious.
Just along from the pallet was a whole host of beautiful large Lillies.
3 large metal poppy sculptures waving in the breeze.
And an interesting little grotto.
There used to be a 12th Century Manor house on the grounds once and parts of this are still visible as ruins. You can read about this here http://www.emmausbrighton.co.uk/ourCommunity/History/
