Imagine an avenue of trees, all bursting into life with a chaos of summer colours, one of our designers said. All righty, we said. Well this is what I see, the designer said, unveiling his masterpiece. Err…dude… we said, this just looks like leaves to us. But good leaves, we added, leaves that are full of colour. As we shuffled away someone muttered “did you see trees?” and someone else “were those leaves purple?”. You see what we have to put up with?
