Welcome to my blog, where I add about Art and things - Enjoying being Volunteer Artist-in-Residence at Arlington Court National Trust Devon
Love the elephant! Certainly not the typical bonfire. :)
I know, we do things a little strangely in Devon! Lol
And here I thought a bonfire was just a pile of brush and wood.
We have a lot to learn CJ :-)
What a fun tradition!
It is. This is all about the Gunpowder Plot, when Guy Fawkes was caught attempting to blow up the House of Lords in 1605. He was not the only one caught.
You have a great vantage point to watch without having to suffer the crowds! Lucky you!
Yes, and William enjoys the fireworks too :-)
Very unusual, I've never seen anything like that before :)
I know, it appears that Guy Fawkes has turned into an elephant over the years, lol.
Didn't know about this tradition, but the fire of the elephant will be spectacular !
It should be another great display:-)
oooo a heffalump! Love it, wish I was going to be there to see it's demise.
They always put on a good display, looking forward to it.
