The restored gardens at Prescott House Estate in Starr’s Point, Nova Scotia . . . yet another gorgeous Georgian manor home and estate, now a provincial museum. My mother took me here as a child, and it is a pleasure to take my own children here for art workshops and picnics in the garden. I’ve had the pleasure of teaching creative writing workshops here in the sunroom. This estate had a huge influence on the development of the fictional “Petal’s End.” The aristocratic cousin in The Memento, Harold Prescott, is proof of that!
