There was a theme running (aimed at the children.. but ;) of finding the mice which were dotted about in the four rooms.. I managed to find 16... don't know if there were any more!!
On entering the house..
the beautifully decorated banister rail of the staircase
and before you enter the first room..
and then into the first room
and even more mice!!
and this mouse had its own gondala
and a very nice fruity scone for lunch
and for a wander - it was raining....there is a series of these 'invitation' cards along one of the paths to the house..
a lovely exhibition - I counted 16 mice in total ..... pity about the weather.. but as Petworth is my 'local' I can see it in all it's guises!!
