Cathedrals, Churches, Birds and Insects

And so where shall we go today? Ah I know St Albans cathedral....

The candle sticking up is the one I lit for Mum.

Shrine of St Alban.

Thought OC would like this.

I found out that one of the few local churches i needed was open today so....

675 St Martins Knebworth.

This was built by Lutyens. The old church is in the grounds of Knebworth House and is superb.

This one wouldn't make my list but hey ho.

I had thought of going to Knebworth House but the sun was shining and I fancied a look around Rye Meads.

Sedge Warbler

Female Common Blue I think

Common Blue Damselfly (I think).

Oh this is a four spotted chaser.

I can't get over the beautiful things in the first church. All those statues in the wall and the stained glass...WOW! Of course the little "Beastie" with wings you can ship over immediately. lol. It's fabulous. The flowers and bugs are wonderful. What on earth is the red bug?

That's the most amazing alter cloth - so colourful as is the tapestry next to it; and a modern design to boot.

And yes - I do like the Sedge Warbler - lucky you to get it with food in its mouth - and the four-spotted chaser is great.

Great sedge warbler - noisy little sods - and cute duckling.
