An un­usual place for pots

Landscape (UK) - - Reader's Letters -

While on re­cent hol­i­day in Devon, we stopped for a cream tea in a lit­tle shop on the banks of the Grand West­ern Canal. It was a small cot­tage, but with a large gar­den con­tain­ing many ta­bles and chairs. I asked the owner where she found the space to keep all the crock­ery nec­es­sary for a com­mer­cial ven­ture. She pointed to the shelves on the out­side of the cot­tage wall con­tain­ing her col­lec­tion of teapots. On see­ing our be­mused faces, she went on to as­sure us that they were for dec­o­ra­tive use only, and that all of the teapots used for cream teas were stored in her kitchen.
