Unusual Front Gardens #23: Santa Stop Here

Festive arrangement on Haworth High Street, December 2014
Haworth, Yorkshire - late December 2014
Haworth in West Yorkshire is famed for its connection with the Brontes and is a popular tourist destination as a result. Its steeply cobbled main street has many tea rooms and shops, so it was great to spot one place where there is a home with much evidence of the hopes of at least one small child.

All the pansies were frozen into submission when I passed by last year, but once the seasonal cold snap stopped they'd soon be springing up again to brighten the stony street .

Veg Plotting will resume in the New Year; may you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, wherever you may be.
