On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me...Eleven pipers piping.
With eleven pipers playing their instruments, you wouldn't want to live next door! It's likely that the pipers were using bagpipes. Not a modern instrument, the origins of the bagpipes can be traced back to ancient times, probably invented by shepherds. Back then, the bags would have been made from goat or sheep skin. It wasn't until the 1700s that the bagpipes found their real home in the British Isles.
This floral arrangement is being designed by Dawn Mason from Distinctive Designs and aptly sponsored by Young's Gas and Oil. To find out how Dawn will be depicting eleven pipers piping, visit the Floral Extravaganza at St. Bart's Church (1-3 Dec 2017). Find out more here
