The finishing touches are being put to a massive garland at a Cornish country house.
The 90-foot garland at Cotehele on the banks of the River Tamar is festooned with 40,000 flowers. They were specially grown in the gardens of the National Trust property during the summer.

A mystery donor has left thousands of pounds outside a charity shop in Exeter, which hopes it will be able to keep the money.Read the full story ›
A mystery donor has left more than £2,000 in cash at the door of a charity shop in Exeter. They left the money in a bag outside the store in Cowick Street with other second-hand goods.
Staff called the police in case the money - in bundles of £20 notes - was left by mistake. Officers are now trying to trace the person who left the money after the shop closed on Monday night, 10 November.
There is nothing to suggest that it is not legitimate but we want to make sure that the person who left the money intended to do so.
The money, which was in used £20 notes and was in excess of £2,000, was in the bag with other items and left outside a charity shop.
It was left before the shop opened and all we are trying to do is confirm that it was the donor's wish to give the money to the charity.
We would like to hear from the person who left the money or from a relative who knows if someone has given away a large sum recently.
This footage shows children in the Devon town of Ottery St Mary taking part in its annual tar barrel event last night (5 November).
It may seem dangerous but organisers say it is perfectly safe - and have the health and safety paperwork to prove it.
Thousands of people descended on Ottery St Mary in Devon on Bonfire Night to watch a tradition that dates back to the 17th century.
Barrels soaked in tar are set alight and carried through the town on the shoulders of residents.
You would have thought that this event would be history in this health and safety conscious age but it happens every year. Take a look:
The centuries old tradition of running burning tar barrels though the streets of Ottery St Mary was celebrated last night, 5 November.
Organisers say they're determined to keep the tradition alive despite obvious health and safety concerns.
It means a lot for the town. It brings in a lot of revenue but it keeps the town as a separate identity. There's nothing else like it in the whole world so we're intending to keep it going for the future generations.
We never sit back on our laurels. We keep working harder each year to make sure it keeps going on the same format.
Daredevil granddad, Sonny Hepburn, from Exeter is still skydiving despite living with a terminal illness.
The 71-year-old former paratrooper was given six to 12 months to live in September 2013. He says he is determined to continue life as normal - as normal as skydiving can be said to be!
To recognise this positive attitude, his friends have made a DVD of him jumping, which they hope will inspire other people.
Watch a video of Landewednack Primary School in Cornwall transformed to a winter wonderland.
It has that eerie quiet of snow before the first person sets foot on it.... let alone a whole class!
Pupils from Landewednack primary school on the Lizard have had a day to remember after snow fell overnight.
The winter wonderland came courtesy of Twitter's @thetwofairies, who go around the country carrying out random acts of kindness. In this case, snow is very unlikely to fall near the school, which is at the most southerly tip of the UK and the air is too salty.
See the children's reaction to their snow surprise:
