One of the blocks of flats near me has this in the garden.
It gets changed throughout the year – at Christmas, there are quite a few Santas. I think grown ups find it a bit strange but children (including my own) like it a lot. Me? I like it – the guy who does this takes a bit of trouble to make his garden look smart and I have to admire his dedication.
Speaking of eye catching displays, did you see the Queen at Trooping the Colour? What nice manners that woman has – loads of people have come out to see her so she wears as bright a colour as she can so they can spot her. I must admit that when I am 90, I can imagine refusing to go to any functions and may just sit on my bottom watching endless episodes of Holby City. But presumably she still likes all the functions?
