A rose I saw on the way to the Royal Crescent.
The ivy has grown over the columns of this grand building, and looks just right there.
The rain was really quite heavy by now, and this begonia (is it a begonia?) looked jewel like.
John Wood, designed the facade, then people bought a length of frontage, and had their own architects design the back. So the back is higgledy piggledy compared to the uniform front. Some houses are one house, but have two front doors, as the owner bought a longer piece of crescent. I wondered if they are still whole houses or divided into flats. I can't imagine what one would cost! (If this link is still there-this much! (£4 million more or less)
So disturbed that they jumped! (I didn't notice this until looking at the photos later. Spooky!)
I was interested to read that the design of the crescent, and a nearby circular road called the Circus, represent the moon and the sun, masonic symbols, as John Wood and his father were interested in occult and masonic symbolism. There are two more streets nearby which, along with the Circus, form a key, another masonic symbol.
Well, another week is over, I don't know where this one went! I need a weekend of doing little jobs and tidying up, how dull! Hope you have a good weekend, whatever you are up to.
