Gilded windows

Notably gilded!247

This is Chatsworth and the light was fairly dull on that day but the gold colour was quite striking nonetheless.

Then the yellow of the hedge in front was again quite eyecatching, more so ,in fact, than if the sun had been out!

The bronze dogs and the stone lion added more interest against the hedge but note that the ground floor windows have not had the gilding treatment!

But hey, who needs to paint their windows gold when nature has its very own golden flowers…
