Was going up into Victoria Square when I saw this yellow floral display. Looks quite nice.
Part of Birmingham in Bloom 2010.
Near one of the Sphinx Guardian's, two red phone boxes and (the former) General Post Office.
The two sphinx-like Guardians (Mistry suggests a 1st Century Indian source). To each side at the top, an Object/Variation, a tapering pillar suggesting lighthouses or pyramids.
