Another birthday present... this is literally on our back doorstep!

Photoshop filter used today.

It took longer than it should have (all afternoon) because the pot is tethered to the stand by a thick hank of shining white cling film! I had to paint it out before using the filter, and there were lots of fiddly bits to paint back in, like on the stand itself.

Don't know why I bother... maybe I was under the pepper's spell.

PS: I was literally going to call it 'Sun Pepper', but there seem to be real sun peppers, and I didn't want to cause confusion.

I don't know what the variety is -- the label simply says 'medium hot pepper'. The only other clue is '2017 Chelsea Show Gold Medal Winner' but that was surprisingly unhelpful.

Oh well.
