Some time ago there was a fashion, or a flashion perhaps, for flash mobbing. Wikipedia’s current definition says: “A is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief period of time, then quickly disperse.”
The other day I took a trip from Settle to Carlisle, and when we got there, we found what I can only describe as a flash municipal park.
The plants were orderly and very very plentiful and
so healthy and cheap that the one I was with had to remind me just how difficult it would be to wrestle them on and off the train. Otherwise I’d have flashed my cash and bought half the pavement.
