It's never too early to start getting into the festive spirit - and Christmas wouldn't be the same without a popular tradition at one of Cornwall's best-loved National Trust properties.
On Saturday the grand hall at Cotehele near Saltash opens its doors to show off this year's spectacular floral display - and it has taken a team effort to create the 60ft-long garland.
The gardeners at Cotehele have totted up 35,770 dried flowers, making the longest Christmas garland at any National Trust property.
A new exhibition in the breakfast room of the house tells the story of the tradition, now in its 63rd year, through images of past garlands.
The completed garland can be seen daily from Saturday November 16 until January 5, except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Choirs will be performing under the garland most days from November 29.
