Bayreuth instals a pink garden gnome

Write your own captions in the space below. Apparently, you can buy one for 300 Euros. In a range of tasteful colours.

    They come in blue besides that mauve colour. They are all over the garden of the Fiestspielhaus, and you can buy them for 300 Euros, I think it was.

  4. I can’t think of a caption, but the Germans have become so cultured they even have Shakespeare themed “Gartenzwerge”– Garden Dwarfs as they are called. One of the most popular models is Gnomeo and Juliette…

    I was going to send you pictures of these little Wagners, but someone beat me to it. Oh well. They’re all over the Wagner park on both sides of the Siegfried Wagner Allee. If you want to buy one, they’re €300 each. If it were France, everyone woud have nicked them all by now. This being Bayreuth, they’re all still there.

    “Pink? Who is calling me pink? That’s magenta…”

  7. Fortunately, he has both arms raised up…

  8. Wait! That was the last swan of the evening!
