February - Iris

A view of the main bath at the Roman Baths in Bath. A rectangular pool of reflective greenish water is framed by sandstone collonades, pediments and statues of Romans. More sandstone buildings are looming in the background in front of a cloudy sky. A few tourists are standing under and above the collonades looking at the bath.
I had a few hours to kill in town on a wet weekday and ended up spending it in the local Roman ruin turned Georgian holiday attraction turned museum. I've been round quite a few times at this point, but honestly my favourite part is always the 3rd-century curse tablets on display in the vaults – hope whoever stole Decimus's nice new cloak got what was coming to them.
