Villa Lante, Bagnaia, Italy
One of the most important gardens in Italy, Villa Lante was in the possession of the Lante family from the 17th century, when it was already 100 years old, until the 20th century, when it was opened to the public. Bordered by two nearly identical homes, the garden is characterized by beautiful stone fountains, lush grottoes and intricate patterns of hedges.

I am not sure what it is about our courtyard at Mustardseed and Moonshine. We seem to collect BIRDS of all the wrong sort....baby pigeons which I ended up hand rearing to a Cormorant (a sea-faring bird defninitly not meant to land plonk in our industrial courtyard) to our NEWEST visitor this morning a young handsome rooster chap, we have nicknamed ROGER. After picking him up without fuss and settling on a lap, we have delivered him to our very own city barnyard farm. When he got there he made a few appreciative gurgles and settled in very pleased with himself!! Oh the Bird adventures we seem to have.
To all our friends who celebrate thanksgiving we at M&M wish you a safe and joyful holiday.
We thank you for being clients of ours and hope you use your Mustardseed and Moonshine pieces for your feast. The only reference I could find courtesy of Country Living Web was of this wonderful fellow...enjoy
