While we were in Cornwall we went to a small fishing village called Mousehole - pronounces "mowzel" not "mouse hole" - don't mess that up :D
This sleepy little town (at least in November) is popular because of a story written in 1995 - based on a local legend, called "The Mousehole Cat" (If you have "wee ones" (young children) and/or a cat person, this book is a must for your collection and worth the cost.)
It is an absolutely adorable Christmas story...our driver who took us around let me read his very worn version of the book. The art is equally enchanting. So you can imagine at Christmas time this city is insane. We were there when they were putting up the Christmas lights and our driver said that they bring people down here by the bus loads to see the village all lit up with lights shaped like the characters from the stories.
So what does that have to do with gardens.
Oh, yeah, because I cannot not take a picture of flowers....I took these pictures of small potted garden in the town.
