And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

There has been some discussion on Thinking Gardens as to whether or not themed gardens at Chelsea are a good thing.  This got the Sock thinking... and wandering around the Courtyard gardens at Chelsea she pondered on exactly what journeys these themed gardens were taking her....

'Lights and Colours of the Alps' was a garden of  rocks and pyramids of 'ice' created from mirrors.


To the Sock they represented her own fractured mind, her intense brilliance and darkness of soul reflected back.  The mirrors breaking her down into mere reflections of her splintered self,  not knowing where one started and another finished. Shards of shattered illusions screaming for the sky only to be muffled with moss and ultimately rendered 'pointless'. The sparkling slopes of experience dulled and decayed by the passing of time..........


The 'Welcome to Yorkshire's Rhubarb Crumble & Custard Garden made the Sock feel hungry.

Pudding anyone?

Wow. This is seriously deep stuff.

Ms B said...

Was that before or after your danish pastry?

Who ate all the pastries?

Shouldn't this post have been written in purple?

Mmmmmmm, custard.

WV says ingsockd which I think means you've been caught out eating that entire bowl of rhubarb!

Perhaps the designer - or you? - had been watching too much Wallander?

Look what you've done. I watched Chelsea at lunchtime and could think of nothing but Carole's shoes, which I never actually saw.

The WV is 'monsta'. Love it.

Actually it was me who ate the pastries. I had a Danish whirly thing with my slightly bitter cappucino and very nice it was too.
Of course if my hostess Ms. B had given me a bacon sarnie for brekkie then I wouldn't have had to go trekking off for cakes!

Move over JAS - these sort of insightful comments is what the Red Button was made for.

PS did you know the designers of the Alps garden had to add the moss et al. to the tops of those mirrors because the organisers were worried that birds might fly into them?

Sounds like a case for Mutt and Jeff!
