Blooming Good!
On our wanderings around Brum we keep finding more of these floral decorations.
There are about 20 scattered around but here are the ones we like best.

Not the best but had to be included

The Lunar Society who used to meet on Sunday afternoons nearest the full moon (so they could find their way home) and discuss scientific topics. Wedgewood, Darwin, Boulton etc were some of the leading lights.





After the battle of Trafalgar, Matthew Boulton struck a special commemorative medal for all those who participated. At his own expense he distributed over 14,000 medals.





Wallace & Grommit are not Brummies!!
