I assume residents of Beacon Hill get accustomed to visitors gawking at the architecture and the beauty of this neighborhood. Similar to Charleston, you find something worthy of a photo every few steps.
Love this spa blue door.

The planter is almost as big as the door.
From the curtains to the bust - so Boston!

Last Sunday Boston was under an unusual tornado warning. 68 mph winds whipped through the area, downing many trees, including this one that lodged itself up against a church.
After all that excitement, I indulged in this hot chestnut puree w/whipped cream concoction. So very good!
