Manchester’s Horticultural Horror Show

on July 11, 2011

Now I recognise that it’s hard to please everyone all the time, and usually I have no objection to Manchester’s municipal flower arranging. Indeed, I have on occasion been known to be complimentary about it. However the utterly horrible plant arrangements on Deansgate and Bridge Street (possibly elsewhere too – I’m afraid to look) deserve mention just because of their absolute unforgiveable hideousness. Look at the evidence below. I’ve wondered what the colour scheme for these abominations was meant to be, but all I can come up with is “Vomit”. Now it could be that lots of Mancunians disrespect the flower arrangements by puking into them after a few drinks too many, but is that really an excuse for making them look like it’s already happened. Manchester Council – please, I beg you, reconsider your colour schemes!
