This post is really just for a friend but I figured my furpals over the pond might also like to see the photos. Poundbury is the town that Prince Charles invented, it’s just outside the county town of Dorchester. It’s not quite finished yet but a while ago the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla visited to unveil the statue of the Queen Mother on a plinth.
This is a Waitrose supermarket which has a big cafe.
This is the Queen Mother up on her plinth.
This is a new pub that’s called the Duchess of Cornwall.
And here is the Queen Mother on her plinth again.
Anyway, the purpose of our visit was to visit Poundbury Garden Centre which is right in the middle of Poundbury, and every year they have a Christmas display. Two years ago it was ‘The lion, the witch and the wardrobe’ which was really fantastic. Last year wasn’t very exciting at all but this year it was a lot better.
This is on the way in…
These reindeer were the highlight of the show
And this is one of our favourite animals.
This was rather fun… a heap of polar bears with some penguins.
And some snowmen
And some more reindeer
Lots of lights and sparkly bits
And still more lights and sparkles
And then there were the strange creatures…
A rather drunk looking camel
Some funny lit up shapes
A disco ball and lots of pretty lights. They had one of the disco ball gadgets left so mum bought it so she can drive Pickle mad.
A whole room full of angels, big ones, small ones…
And the star of the show is the animated cat with her kittens. She’s looking a bit tired now so I think they ought to let mum buy her and take her home.
