Michaelmas, the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels, comes on Thursday of this week. The whole village is getting ready, especially the Michaelmas Daisies. They've been planted all around the village and usually start to bloom in late August. This year they were late, but they're catching up fast.
At Virgo House,
Greenbrier House, and elsewhere. I think they'll be ready when Christ Church holds its annual Michaelmas Festival on the following Saturday. The highlight of the Festival is an English Cream Tea, served in the Friendly House behind the church.
In addition to tea, there will be English Country Dancers, including audience participation,
Hours and tea reservations can be found here. Ya'll come!
