James Merriott continues his watercolour tour of the county counts his blessing on a visit to the beautiful village of Bulphan
I can best describe colourful Bulphan as a village of flowers. Many times during my visits, I have found villagers busy tending flowers, particularly in the churchyards.
It was not surprising then that I found a group of people in the churchyard when I went to record images for this feature.
This was good fortune for me, as not only was I educated with some church history, but also told of the whereabouts of the fabulous Garlesters Farm.
I was excited about going there and upon my arrival I was again fortunate. I found the owner working in her meticulously-kept garden. She was exceptionally nice to me, showing me around her estate and enlightening me with its history.
Then and there I made up my mind to just concentrate on these two properties which I found so incredibly beautiful.
I had no doubts that for January I would complete some of my much-loved snow scenes, although the church I would paint looking at its very best, with the colourful views that I had seen and found so beautiful. It was not just the locations I had chosen, but also the people I had met, that made this feature of Bulphan truly outstanding.
