There are many forms of wealth and in this economic climate this garden certainly rates highly IMO

Taken at Tissington, Derbys, when I visited for their traditional well dressing ceremony to give thanks for the richness of their wonderful fresh mountian spring water. The 6 wells of the village are painstakingly decorated with tiny flower heads pushed into clay to produce an array of scenes depicting centuries old traditions.

A very wise village

I keep meaning to go but never get round to it.
I love that garden so much hard work to get it to that state and not really appreciated by those who pass by.
