Booth's Well 2007



The theme for the 2007 Gee Cross Well Dressing was All Things Bright and Beautiful. The weather last Sunday was atrocious so I missed the ceremony and took this picture on Monday.

You can follow these links to Booth's Well 2006 and Booth's Well 2004 or see my account and photos of the Gee Cross Well Dressing 2006.

I'll show a couple of other wells from this year later on.

Ahhh James Herriot....my favorite vet and how I think of England(having never been there)-- what a beautiful piece! Very colorful.

Hey Neva and Jules -- I think you are confusing "All Things Bright & Beautiful" with "All Creatures Great & Small".

The first is an old hymn which includes the line taken as the title of the books [and later the film and TV adaptations] by James Harriot.

I've got all the books in paperback. I think there was a couple of films made and then a TV series which was tremendous fun. I think these may be available on DVD from the BBC.

I'm surprised it's survived after the downpours recently.

Neva said...

Thanks for clarifying!...(one of the reasons I love visiting different places....) I did go back and read more....a nice custom. (I still like the Harriot series, though!)

Jilly said...

How fascinating. Love the colours, such fun. Great idea. I love these traditions.

So colorful & cheery...think you guys need some cheering up after all the rain, right?

Might need me to visit and bring No Cal sunshine again huh?

Have a good one!
