This photograph is a detail from the Children’s Well Dressing at Holmesfield 2019.
You can see how petals have been, in the traditional way, pressed into clay to make the image of the sun in a blue sky.
The tradition of Well Dressing is one essentially associated with villages in the Peak District of Derbyshire.
Well Dressings historically have religious themes though this has changed with time and the Holmesfield Well Dressing of 2019 is based on The Jungle Book.
Collection boxes for charities are placed near the Well Dressings. If you visit then donate if you can!
