SO lucky on Saturday night. Rain and wind having lashed Suffolk and our back field all day, by the time we ventured out to put Sam, our new wave Guy Fawkes, on the bonfire, the sky had cleared and the stars shining. A perfect night for fires and fireworks. As always, Belle Grove’s resident guests were welcome along, wellies the order of the day.
As can be seen, Sam (made by friends Brian* & Bernie, the first guests at Stable End Cottage, predecessor to Belle Grove Barns) had a distinctly Mexican Day of the Dead look.
The redundant tax papers with which he was stuffed went up a treat….a fitting end.Bonfire Night is such a good excuse for getting rid all the scrap wood collected through the year (and quaff mulled wine brewed on the stove in the Shepherd’s Hut).
