The terrace where taste dies

I'm a young(ish) fogey and I listen to Radio 4 including programmes such as Gardener's Question Time.  Let's just get out the way so you can smirk at my tragic life and then read on.

I was reminded of Bob Flowerdew's recent controversial comment that hanging baskets are "the place where taste dies" by this divine item spotted at Ace, the Dubai equivalent of Homebase:

 That's right, people, it's a free standing water feature modeled on Dubai's seven-star hotel the Burj Al Arab.

It's clearly for the discerning buyer for whom a keyring or ornament is not enough. They want to tack up their garden while simultaneously causing all who come near to want a pee with the permanent sound of running water.

At least you now all know what to buy us for Christmas.
