Monday was a beautiful day weather-wise with the bonus of a lovely colourful sunset. Sandwiched between two cold, wet and dark days, the warm sunlight was much appreciated!

Two new teas to try

I'm on the look out for a drink-every-day winter tea. I like flavoured black teas, particularly the spicy blends. These 20g sample packs are from the Bluebird Tea Co. shop in Gardener Street, Brighton, and each £3 pack contains enough tea to brew about 10 cups.

Four seasons in one day

Rinse-and-repeat weather down here by the sea over the last few days. This is Vallance Road caught at a brief cloudy moment between bright sunshine/blue skies and gales/downpours.
You can see more sky photographs at this week's Skywatch Friday.

Mutant Space Cherries

I came across this empty box in Hove Street this morning (it was Bonfire Night yesterday) and just had to Google Mutant Space Cherries. There's a video here; have to say that the name is much more fun than the actual firework!

I recently discovered that The Spice Shop has a branch in Gardner Street, Brighton. Spices, herbs, garlic, chillies and unusual chocolates. You only get eight wedges in the tiny tin but the chocolate was delicious.

Rich red

I like the colour change of hydrangea flowers at this time of year. This glorious specimen is growing in a garden along Raphael Road.
