'One evening in August, guests were alarmed when they saw
a small brown mouse in Shakespeare's scullery.
He was nibbling at a honey-comb and studied his visitors with great interest
before disappearing under the floor-boards.
Could this character be descended from the mice
that Shakespeare would have known?
It is intriguing to think that this tiny fellow lives
happily in one of the most historic houses in the world.'
Our day in the world of Shakespeare was wonderful.
I picked this card up along the way as a memento.
Here are a few photos of what we saw when we visited
Shakespeare's Houses and Gardens last April
