They just added some holiday decorations just in time.

Mr Spirr, 68, owner of the 68-year-old sausage factory on St. Mary’s Street, said his unusual garden show – featuring a variety of pop culture characters – was ‘a little fun’ and that snow had fallen in today’s show. The death of his beloved French Bulldog, Frank.

“Frank’s garden is called after we pay tribute to Marvin Gorilla, who died last year,” she said.

“It all started with the onset of the CVD. He smiled at the faces of children and adults during the most difficult times.

“I described the theme as unique and arbitrary, so you guessed it, this is not for everyone. It’s very maritime.

“But this holiday season we have added some Christmas decorations and there is a place for families to come and take pictures.”

Although not necessary, the couple said that there is a meeting place in the garden where visitors can trust Phoenix Rehoming dogs.

“It’s very exciting and if people want to donate some money to a dog charity, that’s fine, but only if they want to,” he said.

“I found the images online. It costs a lot but I am very happy with the evolution because we get a lot of positive feedback.

“Like most people, I had a lot of time on my hands when the outbreak started, so I wanted to do something positive when it looked so bad and dark.”

No one is out of the public eye.

He said, “I’m a little showman and the show has rolled around, but it’s all about making people laugh and putting smiles on their faces.”

“Welcome everyone to our garden. We invite everyone to come down, see and laugh.”

“There is no other reason than to make others smile.”
