When I used drive past this church and saw the sign saying St Elizabeth of Hungary I use to think that St Elizabeth used to help out the people who where hungry.

Then later in life I realized that it was spelt a bit differently and it was Hungary the country.

Maybe St Elizabeth was an Hungarian.

Not a good idea to lean a ladder against a pane of glass.

I thinkn the colours and textures of old brick work always look wonderful in sunlight.
