............in Winterbourne House
Spent a lovely day there last Thursday.
Winterbourne House is a unique heritage attraction set within seven acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Only minutes from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is a hidden gem home to beautiful antiques and over 6,000 plant species from around the world.

6,000 plants and what do we get.... a straw boater! WinkGrinGrinGrin albeit a well composed and beautifully detailed boater. A very good crop, Helen.

What a lovely image, Helen!
Reminds me of the days in the 60s when the girls at the school I attended had to wear one in the summer term!
Very popular they were too - NOT!!
They made excellent frisbees, though!!
The symmetrical image composition is excellent and the detail pin sharp.
Must visit this place as it's only about 15 miles from where I live.
