    As promised, a few( ;) )pictures from our day out in London.

    The show is staged in the grounds of the Royal Hospital.

    The residents of the hospital are all pensioner veterans from our armed forces.They are easily distinguished by their bright red uniform coats.Throughout the show they are free to wander at leisure around the stands and gardens.

    Whether you want a shell-encrusted dinosaur or a rosebud-covered gorilla or indeed a lavender-covered gangster there is a trade stand for you!

    More easily recognised sculpture of all sorts waited for credit cards...

    This would make quite a noise if it were real!

    and think of the convenience for hanging out the washing with this

    If money had been no object,and we had enough space then I think I would have liked at least one piece of this sculptor's work...a serious number of £s...

    I still have plenty of shots to process.... but in the meantime I hope you like my "best of the rest" pictures.

    Oh wow, those shell animals are amazing! I can appreciate the amount of work that went into them. Love that dragonfly too :)
