photoblog image At the Garden Centre (4/10)

At the Garden Centre (4/10)

Another one from yesterdays Garden Centre and as usual there were a large number of pots and statues on display.

I picked out a few and this one caught my eye, especially when I done a bit of a conversion on it.

A sign of the times Brian
Brian Walbey: This isn't the most attractive of pots Chris but it was in a handy place to photograph.

Not sure I'd want to give this pair room in my garden! Garden centres are full of these rather tacky specimens - I wish they'd stick to plants.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Some Garden Centres are more like builders yards these days Ingrid.

That is fairly awful isn't it, something my mother would buy for me to go with the concrete sculptures that appeared for a few years as presents.
Brian Walbey: Yes I don't find this very attractive Tony.
They give you Bill and Ben you suply the Weeds
Brian Walbey: Lol Martin, I bet they are hiding there somewheresmile
A two headed vase...strange.
Brian Walbey: Not the most attractive specimen is it Chad.
Is thi antique Brian? (lol). I like the tones!
Brian Walbey: Definitely not antique Richard, best English 21st.Century concrete I think.

Looks like these two have a great weight on their shoulders! Well seen, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
I often wonder just how many pots there are in gardens and when we will reach saturation point
Brian Walbey: There's a good few in our garden Bill, Maureen is the collector, not me.

Surely I can't be the only one to have thought of the question "How much does a Grecian Urn?"
Brian Walbey: That was one of my Dad's standing jokes Ellie, they say "the old ones are always the best." smile

Is that a little tag behind it?
Like the B&W conversion.
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, I think the tag is the price label.
Your a very lucky man Brian..the sun was shining. It makes the same old stuff look a lot better..especialy in B&W.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Ron, thanks for your comment.
