photoblog image At the Garden Centre (9/10)

At the Garden Centre (9/10)

Another image of rows of plants all lined up ready for sale.

Sadly, I suddenly realise as I type these words that they also look like the lines of headstones in a military cemetery I have featured in past postings.

At least these will grow into living things and hopefully give a lot of pleasure to those who put them in their gardens.

There is one more image in this series which I am posting on Saturday as tomorrow, being Good Friday, will feature an image suitable for the day.

you're right, that was the immediate imagery this gave me too.
These are sad times when we are all relating to the sight of so much death.

Cheers

Brian Walbey: That's right Rob, not just war but all those people in the Italy earthquake and so on.

Yup!
Hi-tech headstones...with pretty floral decorations around their base.

Nice one, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
At first I thought they were headstones too!
They will definitly grow beautiful flowers!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, fortunately headstones don't have bar codes.

I'm joining the club - I noticed the similarity to headstones too! This makes a very pleasing composition with them all lined up like this.

My first thought was of Arlington cemetery as well
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, at least it wasn't a cemetery aand hopefully lovely flowers grew from these later that year.
Yeah..just as the others thought at first. The second thought was of beautiful flowers ready for planting...a much better thought indeed Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Ron, beautiful flowers is a much nicer thought.
The thumbnail does look like a cemetery Brian. Mind you there are plenty of us who can kill off plants !
Brian Walbey: Especially me Bill, maureen is the one with green fingers, I leave plants to her.

Lol at Bills comment. I know plenty of people who kill their plants, usually with kindness-overwatering. Lovely purple.
Brian Walbey: In my case it would probably be under-watering Aussie. smile Thanks for your comment.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I'm not a plant growing person, that is Maureen.

I thought of War Graves at first, then how we're always happy to line things up in straight rows - even plants that are in round pots!

These look like very nice Abretia smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie.
