How much quaintness can be crammed into one picture? We"re pushing the limits with this verdant summer scene in North Wales, looking across the River Conwy from its east bank in the town of Llanrwst. Past the Pont Fawr (Big Bridge) in the foreground, the shrubbery-shrouded cottage dubbed Tu Hwnt I"r Bont (Beyond the Bridge) seems to sprout straight from the grass. Built in the 15th century as a farmhouse, it"s now a traditional Welsh tearoom serving up scones to locals as well as visitors bound for nearby Snowdonia National Park.
