I borrowed my mother-in-law's camera to take a few pictures while we were at the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens last week, mostly of an Acadian-style thatched roof cottage in the garden. It is absolutely worth a visit - the gardens are beautifully maintained, everything is lush and gorgeous (and labelled!), and it's nice and shady on a hot summer day. And that cottage? My new house inspiration. I'm only half joking.
