Not like Wales

['St George']

Not spotting today's date, we headed into Woodbridge yesterday for a bit of basic shopping. On Church Street we met St George; the shops were all decked out for a "spectacular window display competition" which basically meant unimaginative incorporation of cheap flags.

I normally dismiss these small town events, but Emma was more impressed. "I've missed this, living in Wales," she said. Sure, St George is England's patron saint but I'd argue it's the way he swiftly dealt with the figure at the centre of the Welsh flag that might breed animosity.

[A 'dragon']

Talking of which, even the trees at Sutton Hoo joined in with the theme, as this snap from an afternoon walk in the drizzle demonstrates.
