Straw man? - the tropicals wrapped up for winter.
The house porch always looks inspiring.
Tulips ready for the next porch display?
Magnolias like lobster claws ready to bloom.
Just to end an already perfect day I took myself off to Hastings. I have never visited there before but what a wonderful surprise, it's a town with that lovely quintessential mix of British ... now how can I describe it ... 'seaside arty grunge' with an amazing amount of gorgeous independent shops in the characterful Old Town area - I love being continually surprised by areas of England I have shamefully never visited. I will definitely be returning to Hastings!
