The hydrangea rides again

My friend D. is a huge fan of hydrangeas (hortensias in French) and I went with her last month to a garden show near Ghent to visit one of the main dealers in Belgium. I found their display a bit surreal, as they had chosen to illustrate their colour selection using dresses on headless dummies.

My favourite things at the show were the robot lawnmowers, I know there is a similar type of vacuum cleaner which I hanker after for my apartment, although I don't suppose I shall ever have one as the cost is ridiculous. I was also amused to see the ticket collectors had propped their refreshments on the bases of the urns flanking the entrance.

Those dummies really appeal to me. Maybe I'm a surrealist :)
