To celebrate her Majesty the Queen's 90th birthday, Laura took her little brother Edmund to a Flower Festival in a nearby church.
The first arrangement they saw was called 'The United Kingdom' - it had red roses for England, leeks for Wales, thistles for Scotland and Shamrock chrysanthemum flowers for Northern Ireland.

They discovered the Queen's handbags on a table.
|Laura liked a handbag decorated with hydrangea flowers|
|Edmund tried to lift a handbag of small white flowers just like Mia Tindall (the Queen's great-granddaughter) did in the 90th birthday portrait|
|Edmund and Laura liked The Commonwealth flower arrangement|
There was a magnificent display of the Queen's Coronation including photos of the event and a stunning arrangement symbolising the crown and clothes she wore for that historic event in 1953.

|The Coronation display was so elegant|
Nearby was a tribute to all the soldiers lost in war, called 'Lest we forget'.
|Laura and Edmund bowed their heads at 'Lest we forget'|
|Edmund was fascinated by the red poppies and spotted a bugle in the display|
|The 'Diamonds and Pearls' display matched their clothes very well|
|Laura and Edmund had fun spotting different characters in 'The Royal Family Tree'|
|Edmund particularly liked the little guard figure while Laura liked the crochet hats which represented the hats worn at the Buckingham Palace garden tea parties|
|Laura and Edmund were glad to sit down for a rest with tea and cake|

|The floral crown was beautiful and Edmund was pleased that Laura allowed him to stand beside such an important symbol of Royalty. He was on his best behaviour and stood to attention like a Buckingham Palace guard.|
|Edmund added his pennies for the flowers|
