Unusual Front Gardens #20: Statue

Photo of a front garden in Wiltshire with a statue of a girl dressed for the season

I spotted this jolly scene on a trip out with my SUP friends recently. We were walking through the village of Holt and stopped to admire the sunglasses and umbrella on the statue. October was very warm this year, but umbrellas not sunglasses were needed on our walk that day.

Just as we were about to leave the cottage owner appeared, who smiled and laughed at our appreciation of her handiwork.

"Ah yes" she said, "I really must dig out her coat now that autumn's here".

It turns out the statue is well known locally. Often when she gives directions to where she lives, there's a cry of recognition - "Ohhhh, you're the lady with the girl in the garden!"

  1. What a funny little statue, I can see why she's well known. No doubt the local children absolutely love it.
