what a difference a day makes

i took this photo of two bollards having a chat in the street yesterday morning. one had a januty hat, and i suspect they were talking about something but it seemed rude to stop and listen.
this morning it was a different story. the two of them looked quite stand-offish. i noticed there was a christmas tree between them so perhaps that’s relevant.
i suspect old jaunty-hat wanted to have it up all year round, but no-hat didn’t want to. i once had a christmas tree up for three years. but then i took it down.
