La vida de Annie

By Annie

Esto no es un aguacate.

This reminds me of Magritte's "Ceci n'est pas une pipe", explaining his painting The Treachery of Images. His point was that although quite obviously a pipe, it was not one, but merely an image of a pipe.

Here we have an avocado tree with a cardboard cutout of an avocado tied to it. We were at the garden centre looking for something to cheer me up on my brain explosion anniversary, or re-birthday as I like to call it. last year's celebration was a lot more creative, though in many ways this represents how I feel now - a cardboard cutout of my former self.
I didn't buy an avocado tree, but went for a tiny mandarin one instead.
