Rainbow Bench

A while ago I made a rainbow. Some of it was crafted in a caravan on our summer holiday this year. It was done with laughing children at my feet and sunshine beating through the caravan door. Now that the weather is blustery and cold I found a bench that looked like it needed some summer.

Here's the place on google maps. A beautiful little village.....,-2.160873&spn=0.000103,0.076818&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=13.052763,39.331055&vpsrc=6&hnear=Barlaston,+Stoke-on-Trent,+United+Kingdom&t=m&z=14&layer=c&cbll=52.951696,-2.160781&panoid=zn7xLUuz0KnE4q6iKOVN7A&cbp=12,202.05,,0,0

Its a memorial bench to a man called Donald Foulkes, altough the plaque is no longer there. He was quite a character and was well known whilst working on the Wedgwood factory just down the road. I thought he'd probably think it was nice to brighten up his bench.

Its so cold on that bench today. No, not cold.....blustery. The wind was really refreshing and the sun was beaming, just like on our family holiday. A great day for photographs........

The Rainbow is no more :0(
Sadly missed 10th February 2012.
