Queens 90th Birthday

The country was abuzz last week celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday.

Planning has been going on for months and years ..from the Trooping of the Colour to local street parties.  Buntings were seen on homes, pubs, parklands and high streets.

One local village, Bricket Wood, Hertfordshire put on a local fair.  They painted the green with the number 90 in the English colours of red, white and blue.

I felt like I was standing in the middle of the MCG for a moment .  !!

There was a  children’s jumping castle and fun rides  .

There were dogs everywhere.  The search was on to find which dog had the ‘waggiest’ tail.  I never did find out the winner.  There were so many dogs and the judging was taking forever.
