FLOWER FESTIVAL at HIGHAM HALL
Friday 2nd to Monday 5th September 2016
10am to 5pm
Dare we imagine a world without flowers? We would be deprived visually, but but also biologically as flowers represent the ability to attract the opportunity to propagate new life. Appreciating what flowers give us in life is terribly important. Many cultures remind us what flowers mean to our lives, but even without such symbolic and cultural significance, the hardest of hearts can acknowledge the natural beauty that they bring to the world.
On a practical basis, artists and embroiderers, photographers and poets exploit the visual aspects of flowers in what they produce. On an emotional basis, many people simply just enjoy seeing the splashes of colour, the shapes and the scent of flowers. Of course, flowers are used to celebrate special moments, as gifts and as a sign of devotion or remembrance.
Whatever the reason, flowers add much to our lives and so, when our local parish church in Setmurthy asked us whether Higham would like to be decorated with flowers for their festival this year, we were thrilled. This will take place on the first weekend of September through to the Monday. All proceeds will go to Setmurthy Church. All are welcome to pop up and enjoy the colour and beauty.
