Allotments in miniature


I have just got back from a short trip to Germany where I visited Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg. It’s basically the world’s biggest train set, which features many mini mountains and mini towns as well as mini gardens and mini allotments like the one above. There was even a mini garden centre.

You can’t see it in this shot but one customer has foolishly overloaded their trolley with pots and other gardening items and it has toppled over in the car park. Nearby someone else has just been hit in the face with a plank, which is comedy law if someone is carrying a plank. Having said that, the inhabitants of Miniatur Wunderland do appear to be more accident prone than normal folk. Another one of my favourite tableaux featured some kind of flower/garden festival where the immaculate lawn had been ruined by a mole. The hapless mini mole is shown being arrested by the police with a mini tear running down his cheek. This made me feel sorry for the mini mole.
